Dictionary search with wildcards and a word unscrambler.
:: Software :: Words
DescriptionWords is a handy utility for searching a dictionary and solving word unscrambling problems.
Words v2.0 contains two utilities (findword and unscramble) and a dictionary. The dictionary lists words, each on its own line. You can replace this dictionary with a similar file if you so choose. (I've been known to use the Scrabble(tm) Dictionary on occasion.)
Findword is a utility to search for a word in the dictionary. Typing in a word will search for that word exactly in the dictionary. Using a "*" will match any number of characters and using a "?" will match exactly one character. For example:
tr*ing - all words that begin with "tr" and end with "ing"
?ing - all words that have 1 letter, then "ing"
sp*???ing - all words that start with "sp" have at least 3 letters, then end in "ing"
Scram is a utility to unscramble words. Simply type the scrambled word in the box and press "unscramble". Wildcards ("*", "?") are not allowed in this entry.
Note: Due to a bug, you will have to use the mouse to click on the "Unscramble" button.
