```# Largest product in grid
#
# In the 20x20 grid below, four numbers along a diagonal line
# have been marked in red.
#
# The product of these numbers is 26 * 63 * 78 * 14 = 1788696.
#
# What is the greatest product of four adjacent numbers in the
# same direction (up, down, left, right, or diagonally) in the
# 20x20 grid?
