in reply to A Better Word Morph Builder

FWIW, similar solutions to word ladder puzzles can be found in the previous discussions Solving word ladder puzzles and Solve Word Ladders. While the implementations may be slightly different, the end goal is the same (well, nearly - the focus is solving the puzzle in a set number of steps rather than the smallest number of them).

    bobf,
    Thanks for the links! It appears that word ladder differs slightly from word morph in that, according to Wikipedia, letters can be removed or added in addition to just changing them. In any case, I would love to add some of the approaches in these links to the list of benchmarks except they don't lend themselves to just copy/pasting a function.

    Cheers - L~R
