Hm. L~R: I've sat on these results for an hour now (it takes about 2 hours to run) whilst I looked for errors. I haven't seen anything obvious.

But, you should probably take them with a pinch of salt. I see the possibility for something wrong in these results, but it is too late, and takes too long to verify them tonight. I'll attempt verification tomorrow.

However, the results are interesting enough that I felt you might like to see them. The following two sets of results are from my (179k) dictionary and the (81k) 2of12int.txt. These results do allow for set of 8 letters than include duplicates, though none are in the top 50.

What is intriguing (and worrying) is that word counts are identical; but the charsets are not!

my dictionary 2of12int.txt aeilprst: 552 aeilprst: 552 aeinprst: 528 aeinprst: 528 aeilnrst: 520 aeilnrst: 520 adeilrst: 516 adeilrst: 516 aeloprst: 515 aeloprst: 515 aeilmrst: 499 aeilmrst: 499 aeilnpst: 497 aeilnpst: 497 adeoprst: 490 adeoprst: 490 adeiprst: 487 adeiprst: 487 aenoprst: 484 aenoprst: 484 aeginrst: 484 aeginrst: 484 adeinrst: 481 adeinrst: 481 aeimnrst: 480 aeimnrst: 480 aceoprst: 479 aceoprst: 479 aeimprst: 473 aeimprst: 473 aehoprst: 471 aehoprst: 471 adeilprs: 468 adeilprs: 468 aceiprst: 465 aceiprst: 465 abeilrst: 464 abeilrst: 464 aefilrst: 462 acenorst: 462 acenorst: 462 aefilrst: 462 aeinorst: 458 aeinorst: 458 adeimrst: 454 adeimrst: 454 acelorst: 452 acelorst: 452 aceinrst: 451 aceinrst: 451 aceilrst: 451 aceilrst: 451 aelprsty: 446 aelprsty: 446 acelprst: 446 acelprst: 446 adeilpst: 446 adeilpst: 446 abelorst: 443 abelorst: 443 adelorst: 443 adelorst: 443 adeilmrs: 441 adeilmrs: 441 aegilrst: 439 aegilrst: 439 adeilnrs: 437 adeilnrs: 437 aehlorst: 437 aemnorst: 437 aemnorst: 437 aehlorst: 437 abdeilrs: 436 abdeilrs: 436 aeilmnst: 435 aeilmnst: 435 adeiorst: 435 adeiorst: 435 aelmprst: 433 aeoprstu: 433 aeoprstu: 433 aelmprst: 433 aegoprst: 433 aegoprst: 433 einoprst: 432 aegilnst: 432 aegilnst: 432 einoprst: 432 acehorst: 431 acehorst: 431 aehiprst: 431 aehiprst: 431 aegnorst: 430 aeilmprs: 430 aeilmprs: 430 aegnorst: 430 aeiklrst: 426 aeilnprs: 426 aeilnprs: 426 aeiklrst: 426

I am convinced that the top result from both datasets is "the right answer"; despite the uncomfortable feeling from the concordance of the numbers and the discordance of the charsets. Tomorrow...

      Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
