How can I show steps of Tower of Hanoi using sas 9.4 in table form?


Hello. I want to see the movement of the tower of hanoi if there are many disks. I am interested in creating coding for this game, showing the movement of solving the tower of hanoi using array and macro. I totally have no idea of how the iteration should look like. Can anyone lend me a hand? The output table should be like this for moving 2 disks from rod1 to rod3:

 

obs   rod1   rod2   rod3   count

1                     1                   1

2                               2         2

3                               1         3

 

Cheers!

@amyamy

Such "playing around" solving some "artificial" problem can be a great way to improve problem solving and coding skills. But for this reason it's something you should be doing mainly on your own and only ask very specific detail questions in case you get stuck somewhere.

 

Before you even start coding you need to understand the pattern (the logic) required to solve the Tower of Hanoi. That's what you then can implement using code. Eventually start with some Internet research on how to solve the Tower of Hanoi.
