Hi,

I'm asking because the output of your program does IMHO not give a hint of the right solution for the following dict:

aa aab baa aba ccc cdc dcc ccd rs sr qt tq uv vu wx xw

What do you think?

Best regards
McA

    My method is to, for each word, count the number of words that can be made using its letters. I then choose the word with the highest count. I suppose the best combination could be something else entirely, though.
