I'm glad to hear that you've found this program useful!

Regarding your bug report, it sounds like the word file has Windows line endings rather than Unix line endings. chomp removes the linefeed, but not the carriage return, screwing up the length of the line. Try removing carriage returns from the word file: perl -pi -e 'tr/\r//d' wordlist
