I have to build a program which takes a password as input and then the password machine hacks it. It should do it by looping through the ascii character map 4 times i.e a, b ,c etc followed be aa, ab, ac. It's meant to simulate a "brute force attack". Can you offer me any advice in checking the ascii map in this way using a loop and also I need to return the amount of time taken for it to hack it. Is there a way I can return the seconds, or will I have to simulate it? Thanks!
