Diamond

The diamond kata takes as its input a letter, and outputs it in a diamond shape. Given a letter, it prints a diamond starting with 'A', with the supplied letter at the widest point.

Requirements

• The first row contains one 'A'.
• The last row contains one 'A'.
• All rows, except the first and last, have exactly two identical letters.
• All rows have as many trailing spaces as leading spaces. (This might be 0).
• The diamond is horizontally symmetric.
• The diamond is vertically symmetric.
• The diamond has a square shape (width equals height).
• The letters form a diamond shape.
• The top half has the letters in ascending order.
• The bottom half has the letters in descending order.
• The four corners (containing the spaces) are triangles.

Examples

In the following examples, spaces are indicated by `·` characters.

Diamond for letter 'A':

 ```1 2 3 4 5``` ```··A·· ·B·B· C···C ·B·B· ··A·· ```

Diamond for letter 'E':

 ```1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9``` ```····A···· ···B·B··· ··C···C·· ·D·····D· E·······E ·D·····D· ··C···C·· ···B·B··· ····A···· ```
