There are 25 letter sets that will cover 4 words of your sample dictionary:

375 seconds isn't as impressive, but better than 24 hours :)

This makes use of another optimisation that only benefits when the dictionary is small like yours:

#! perl -slw use strict; use Time::HiRes qw[ time ]; $|++; sub uniq{ my %x; @x{@_} = (); keys %x } my $start = time; my @lookup = map{ my $bits = pack 'C', $_; [ grep vec( $bits, $_, 1 ), 0 .. 7 ] } 0 .. 255; my %dict; my %alphabet; while( <> ) { chomp; next if length > 8; my $r = \%dict; undef( $alphabet{ $_ } ), $r = $r->{ $_ } //= {} for sort split '' +, $_; push @{ $r->{_} }, $_; } my @alphabet = sort keys %alphabet; my $best = [ 0, '' ]; my %stats; sub X { my( $first, $soFar, $tree ) = @_; if( @$soFar == 8 ) { my @words = uniq map { my $r = \%dict; $r = $r->{ $_ } for @{ $soFar }[ @{ $lookup[ $_ ] } ]; exists $r->{_} ? @{ $r->{_} } : (); } 0 .. 255; return unless @words > 1; print @{ $best = [ scalar @words, join '', @$soFar ] } if @wor +ds > $best->[0]; $stats{ join '', @$soFar } = \@words; return; } for( grep $_ ge $first, @alphabet ) { # next unless exists $tree->{ $_ }; X( $_, [ @$soFar, $_ ], $tree->{ $_ } ); } return; } X( 'a', [], \%dict ); print time - $start; <STDIN>; printf "[%d] %s : @{[ @{$stats{ $_ }} ]}\n", scalar @{$stats{$_}}, $_ +for sort{ @{ $stats{ $b } } <=> @{ $stats{ $a } } } keys %stats;

With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
@$soFar, $_
