boggler -- find words in a block of letters, in the manner of Boggle
boggler [-w wordlist] [-q] row [row ...]
boggler finds words in a block of letters, in the manner of the game Boggle from Parker Brothers. A word is spelled out by joining letters up, down, sideways, and diagonally, in a continuous path. The same instance of a letter may not be used more than once in the same word.
boggler will print all words that can be spelled out with the given block of letters. Each row of letters in the block is passed as a separate argument. The standard block is four letters by four letters, but boggler will accept any rectangular block of letters.
boggler accepts the following options:
For a comprehensive word list, the author recommends the ENABLE word list, with more than 172,000 words, which can be found at http://personal.riverusers.com/~thegrendel/software.html
boggler has no known bugs.
