And if you don't mind the (second) argument getting printed, another 3 chars less:
perl -nlE'sub w{[sort/./g]}$w||=w$_=pop;$w~~w&&say' ./dict.txt acert

This one is wrong (only) if the first line of 'dict.txt' contains a valid word (different from arg2).


$ cat dict.txt one neo noe bad $ perl -nlE'sub w{[sort/./g]}$w||=w$_=pop;$w~~w&&say' ./dict.txt oen oen neo noe

First word is missing. Anyway, this is a very beautiful version: ++

UPDATE: with an extra newline

perl -E'@a=sort pop=~/./g;say grep@a~~[sort/./g],<>' ./dict.txt acert

UPDATE2: one char useless

perl -E'@a=sort pop=~/./g;say grep@a~~[sort//g],<>' ./dict.txt acert

    Nice. Here's one that returns the correct output using a few characters less:

    perl -nE'$w//=pop;[sort$w=~/./g]~~[sort//g]&&print' ./dict.txt acert

    or, two characters less than that, but with an extra newline between each word:

    perl -nE'$w//=pop;[sort$w=~/./g]~~[sort//g]&&say' ./dict.txt acert

    UPDATE: shorter version with correct output:

    perl -nlE'$w//=pop;[sort$w=~/./g]~~[sort//g]&&say' ./dict.txt acert

    or, same length, more efficient:

    perl -nlE'($w//=[sort pop=~/./g])~~[sort//g]&&say' ./dict.txt acert
