Say I have the word 'Mississippi'. The program I'm writing basically does asks the user for a number, and if that number is greater than 4, the given word (Mississippi) becomes masked with '*', so in this case, '***********'. But, if the user enters 3, then the given word is only masked up to every fourth letter, so for example, in this case, '***s***i***'. Now, how can I write code to mask in this way (only masking some of the text and not all)? I figured out how to mask them all for 4, that's pretty easy, but should I use a loop for 3? I'm not sure how to begin..
