### [ Google CT2004 ] RoundA : Problem D. Cross the maze

Problem:
Edison, a robot, does not have a right hand or eyes. As a brave robot, he always puts his left hand on the wall no matter he walks or turns around. Because he thinks it is too dangerous, Edison does not walk backward.

Assume that Edison has found himself in a square-shaped maze of NxN square cells which is surrounded by walls from the outside. In the maze, some of the cells are also walls. Edison can only move between two empty cells in four directions, north, south, west and east. In order to get out of the maze, he drafts a plan. He uses his left hand to lean on the wall and goes by following the wall.

Here is the question, is Edison able to get out of the maze in at most 10,000 steps? If he can make it, output the path. By getting out of the maze, he only needs to be in the exit cell. If the starting cell is the same as the exit, Edison won't need to move and can directly get out of the maze.

Input:
The first line of the input gives the number of test cases, TT test cases follow. Each test case starts with an integer NN is the size of the maze. The following N lines, each line contains N characters which may be '.' or '#'. '.' is an empty cell, '#' is a wall. Followed by a line which contains four integers: sx, sy, ex, ey. (sx, sy) means that Edison is standing on row sx and column sy as his starting cell, (ex, ey) is the exit of the maze. (sx, sy) is guaranteed to be at one of the 4 corners of the maze, and Edison can only touch the wall on 4 adjacent cells(not 8) initially. (ex, ey) can be anywhere in the maze. Note that the top-left corner is at position (1,1).

Output:
For each test case, output a line containing "Case #x: y", where x is the case number (starting from 1) and y is "Edison ran out of energy." (without the quotes) if Edison can't reach the exit of the maze in at most 10,000 steps, otherwise y should be the number of steps followed by another line which contains y characters to describe the path (each character should be E for east, S for south, W for west or N for north). There is no character to represent the turning around. We don't care about the turning around steps, please only output the path of how Edison will cross the maze.

Limits:
1 ≤ ≤ 30.
1 ≤ sx, sy, ex, ey ≤ N
The starting cell and the exit of the maze will always be an empty cell. And the starting cell and the exit of the maze won't be the same.
Small dataset
2 ≤ N ≤ 10.

Large dataset
2 ≤ N ≤ 100.

- 再走迷宮的時候左邊一定要有牆.
- 只能往前走, 不能往後走.
- 步數在 10,000 以內須能走到終點.

0. 決定左手的方向 (左手必須有牆)
1. 如果面向的方向是牆的話, 則向右轉直到面向的方向沒有牆. (因為右轉後, 左手邊一定是牆)
1.1 如果連轉三次都是牆, 說明四面都是牆. 結束迷宮遊戲 (失敗).
2. 往前走一步 > start = start.move(moveDir); (start 紀錄目前所在的座標)
2.1 如果走完所在目標等於終點, 則結束迷宮遊戲 (成功).
2.2 如果目前左手邊不是牆則往左手邊移動 (因為左手邊一定要是牆), 並將左手的方向往左邊移動 > handDir = turnLeft(handDir)
2.3 如果走完所在目標等於終點, 則結束迷宮遊戲 (成功).
