in thread Challenge: 8 Letters, Most Words
What was the "off-by-one" error? Using the same dictionary file, I get aeinprst = 346 which I have manually verified. This isn't brute force (as you have indicated elsewhere) - it is heuristic but appears to come up with the correct result. While I like it, I needed to know for certain which is why I wrote an exhaustive solution which amazingly finished in 12 minutes.
