Using the Dictionary!

software development


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.
