  g(2) = "KKE"
  g(3) = "TTE"
  g(4) = "KET"
  g(5) = "TKK"
  g(6) = "KTT"
  For p1 = 1 To 3
     Mid(a$, 1, 1) = Mid("TEK", p1, 1)
  For p2 = 1 To 3
     Mid(a$, 2, 1) = Mid("TEK", p2, 1)
  For p3 = 1 To 3
     Mid(a$, 3, 1) = Mid("TEK", p3, 1)
     good = 1
     For person = 1 To 6
      found = 0
      For i = 1 To 3
        If Mid(a$, i, 1) = Mid(g(person), i, 1) Then
