Problem type

Given an N \times N grid of letters, one can select four squares such that the first is a C, the second is an A, the third is an L, and the last is an I, and two adjacent squares in the pattern share at least a corner.

This selection process is repeated as many times as possible, with the caveat that a given square can only be selected at most once.

Compute the maximum number of distinct sets of letters that can be selected.
