Today is army day, but the servicemen are busy with the phalanx for the celebration of the 60th anniversary of the PRC.  A phalanx is a matrix of size n*n, each element is a character (a~z or A~Z), standing for the military branch of the servicemen on that position.  For some special requirement it has to find out the size of the max symmetrical sub-array. And with no doubt, the Central Military Committee gave this task to ALPCs.  A symmetrical matrix is such a matrix that it is symmetrical by the “left-down to right-up” line. The element on the corresponding place should be the same. For example, here is a 3*3 symmetrical matrix:  cbx  cpb  zcc InputThere are several test cases in the input file. Each case starts with an integer n (0<n<=1000), followed by n lines which has n character. There won’t be any blank spaces between characters or the end of line. The input file is ended with a 0.OutputEach test case output one line, the size of the maximum symmetrical sub- matrix.  Sample Input 3 abx cyb zca 4 zaba cbab abbc cacq 0Sample Output 3 3
