# Integer zigzag creator

## World's simplest integer tool

This online program creates a zigzag from integer digits and prints them in a triangle-like snake shape in the output. The zigzag can start from the top, bottom, or any other position and it can be of any height. You can adjust how many digits go in each segment of the integer snake, add an extra distance between segments, and fill the empty space with custom characters.

What is a integer zigzag creator?

With this browser-based utility, you can make integers go in zigzags. The integers are split into individual digits and the digits are then rearranged so that a triangular wave shape is created. The wave is formed by moving each digit in the order it appears in the integer to a higher or lower line. This wave is also sometimes called the digital snake or digital worm, and it can start its movement from any line and can go up or down. If the top starting position is selected (in the options), the first digit is placed in the first column of the top-most line and the snake will go down. If the bottom position is selected, the snake will begin from the lowest spot and move upward to the next value. To start in the middle, select the custom start mode and specify the starting position and the initial movement. For example, "2u" means start at the second row from the top and move up or "3d" means start from the third line from the bottom and move down. The number of horizontal lines in the zigzag determines its height and it can be specified in the options. By default, one digit creates one segment of the zigzag but it can be also changed in the options. The number of digits in the segment is called the segment length. The segments are combined together at various heights to create the whole zigzag. You can create any number of digital worms from many integers at once. To do it, put each integer on a new line in the input box. When creating the integer worms, the empty space around the digits is filled with the white-space characters, but you can use any other filling character. You can also stretch the worm by adding extra fill characters between its segments. Integerabulous!

Alternating ZigZag

In this example, we create a small integer zigzag from twenty digits with an amplitude of two. We start the zigzag from the top row, moving down first, then up, then down again, then up again, and so on. As the height of the wave is two, it fits on two lines and the digits alternate between to first and second rows. The length of wave sections is one digit long and the spaces between the digits are filled with empty symbols.

Dash-filled Waves

In this example, we simultaneously turn three integers into wavy snake-like shapes. We set the segment size to two that groups the digits in pairs and start the wave from below, reaching the full height in two steps and making a full oscillation in four steps. We expand the wave horizontally, adding an extra space between all pairs of digits and use the dash symbol to fill the distance between them.

Unicode Digit Snake

This example loads unusual Unicode boxes with digits in the input and converts them into a digit snake in the output. It uses empty blue boxes as background filling symbols and draws the digit boxes from a custom starting position "2d". This notation starts the snake at the 2nd position and makes it go down at the first step. The snake's height is set to three digits and in the output, we get a symmetrical shape similar to the Latin letter "W".
