Anything is possible. Practical is another matter entirely. Generating palindromes of random symbols is trivial and involves a simple data structure called a pushdown stack. Generating a meaningful palindrome in any of the planets natural languages is a bit tougher. A related problem called a fuzz phrase generator is easy and loads of fun to program and observe. Tell us more about what you had in mind.

A bit tougher? No only does a palindrome have to be a mirror reflection in the characters used, it also has to make sense. Could any processor parse "Madam, I am Adam"? Or have come up with it to begin with? Drop the caps and punctuation and it's "madamiamadam". Nothing really jumps out to me.

Can you make palindromes in Chinese?

It's not a palindrome in that form - you have to use the contraction I'm for "I am"

What gets assigned is a pointer to the first character in the string. The length is determined by having an "end" marker like a zero or null character. It is also possible to encode the length of a string in the string data.
