i goofed up my thread by using the word “anagram” incorrectly, or too
i also wanted to find all the smaller words that i can make with the
letters that i have.
for example i would like for “monkey” to return with “monk” and “key”
and “money” and so on, not just 6 letter
i think this makes it so you can’t use the methods where you sort
everything first, which i discovered didnt work
all the time if you want smaller words too.
if you sort “monkey” you get “ekmnoy” but if you sort “monkeys” you get
“ekmnosy”, which means if your letters
are “monkeys”, you wont get “monkey” back. that s is a big monkey wrench
between o and y.
maybe i should do the sort first way on the words in the dictionary that
have the same amount of letters, and
then do some other way on all the words that have less letters, and skip
all the words that are too long?
i’m still glad for all the nice anagram (in the strict sense) finder
code in this thread. this is the best list ever.
