I am a complete Elixir beginner. I am trying to understand certain concepts with the following Mastermind sub-problem.

Suppose I have two lists `code = [0, 3, 2 ,3, 4, 5]`

and `guess = [0, 4, 2, 4, 3, 3]`

.

My approach is, we compare the two lists and assign two values, one for both correct guess and position (CP), and the other for correct guess but for wrong position (CG). In the above example: CP is 2 (the first and third guess), and the CG is 3 (two 3s and one 4).

I guess there are numerous ways to approach. What I wanted to achieve was this: We traverse the two lists to determine correct positional guesses and produce two new lists. For the above example, that would be:

`[:true, 3, :true, 3, 4, 5]`

and `[:true, 4, :true, 4, 3, 3]`

Then, we traverse the two lists for the second time and produce a third list, such that we take each item from the new `guess`

list and check if the `code`

list contains it. If so, the new list returns, say, :guess for those guesses. So the third list will be:

`[:true, :guess, :true, :guess, :guess: 5]`

and `[:true, :ok, :true, 4, :ok, :ok]`

And now we count the :true, and :guess.

- What is the Elixir way to produce the second list and the third list.
- How else can I approach it anyway (again, in an idiomatic Elixir way)?
