LanX,
I did that but it didn't reduce it dramatically. As I pointed out elsewhere, that only gets it down to 12_461_993.

Cheers - L~R

    Yeah I agree about 12_461_993

    Anyway you don't need to check against all words in the dictionary, only taking the (at most) 256 subsets of a potential 8 letter combination. (less if letters are repeated)

    This can be done in a lookup in a prepared count-hash with normalized keys.

    Cheers Rolf
