Nucleotide Count in Delphi Pascal
Given a DNA string, compute how many times each nucleotide occurs in the string.
exercism fetch delphi nucleotide-count
Given a single stranded DNA string, compute how many times each nucleotide occurs in the string.
The genetic language of every living thing on the planet is DNA. DNA is a large molecule that is built from an extremely long sequence of individual elements called nucleotides. 4 types exist in DNA and these differ only slightly and can be represented as the following symbols: 'A' for adenine, 'C' for cytosine, 'G' for guanine, and 'T' thymine.
Here is an analogy:
- twigs are to birds nests as
- nucleotides are to DNA as
- legos are to lego houses as
- words are to sentences as...

For example, if you're submitting
ubob.pas for the Bob exercise, the submit command would be something like
