anagram - rearrange letters to form new words
anagram [-d|--dictionary pathname] [-f|--files] [-l|--length numbers] [--debug] [--help|-?] [--version] [--] [letters]
The anagram utility rearranges the given letters to form as many words (anagrams) as possible.
Standard input is read if no letters are provided on the command line.
The -l|--length option can be used to form words of selected size with the letters provided.
The -f|--files option can help you select a dictionary.
|-d--dictionary pathname||Use this dictionary pathname if you don't want the default dictionary|
|-f|--files||Print possible dictionary files in the DICTPATH|
|-l|--length numbers||Specify anagrams lengths if you want intermediate sizes. numbers is a number or a comma separated list of numbers or dash separated number intervals|
|--debug||Enable debug mode|
|--help|-?||Print usage and a short help message and exit|
|--version||Print version and exit|
|--||Options processing terminator|
The ANAGRAM_DEBUG environment variable can also be set to any value to enable debug mode.
The DICTPATH environment variable is the search path for the dictionary files. It is a colon-separated list of directories in which anagram looks for a words dictionary file. If not set it will default to /usr/share/dict:/usr/local/share/dict. Under a Posix system, $HOME/.local/share/dict will also be added to the default, while %HOMEPATH%/appdata/roaming/python/share/dict:%HOMEPATH%/appdata/local/programs/python/pythonXX/share/dict will be added under a Windows system.
The ANAGRAM_DICT environment variable provides a way to avoid specifying an alternate directory on each command line.
/usr/share/dict/words is the default (English) dictionary on a BSD operating system.
Some French dictionaries are also installed as a dependency.
The anagram utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.
To solve a Wordscapes (French) level where the available letters are ABCDEFG, I use a command like:
$ export ANAGRAM_DICT=/usr/local/share/dict/dict-fr-Wordscapes $ anagram -l 3-7 abcdefg
Other dictionaries are also available. For example:
$ export ANAGRAM_DICT=/usr/local/share/dict/dict-fr-ABU-mots_communs.ascii $ export ANAGRAM_DICT=/usr/local/share/dict/dict-fr-AU-DELA-common-words.ascii
The anagram utility is not a standard UNIX command.
Tested OK under Windows.
It is available under the 3-clause BSD license.
An English dictionary should be packaged for operating systems that are not providing one.
Searching only for a words link to one of the directories in the DICTPATH is too limitated.
Download the file for your platform. If you're not sure which to choose, learn more about installing packages.
