Ha ha, that sounds horrible. Ok, so I'm programming an anagram game for my site and don't want it to discredit submitted real words that can be formed from the letter list I provide. I'm trying to catch any short-sightedness before I finish programming. The only way to accomplish this feat would be to look the word up in the dictionary! I know dreamhost has a dictionary file but I was just wondering how exactly to use it. Is it a text file iI can read or do I pipe input to it? Anyone who knows I will greatly appreciate that knowledge! Thanks and later.
