Abstract: ANAGRM is an anagram dictionary which will run on a number
of systems.  The spelling dictionary came from Chris Doran's
compilation on the Symposium Collection from the RSX SIG,
Fall 1988, Anaheim, DECUS No. 11S104.  The lookup
algorithm is different.  The words are segregated into files
by length, and are within files in anagrammatic order.  The
words are looked up by a binary search.  Performance is reasonable
for this application, although there is quite a bit of file
To use this program, simply RUN ANAGRM;.  You will be
prompted for the anagram you wish to decode.  All words
having the anagram you entered will be listed, and you will
be prompted for another anagram.  The FORTRAN version exits
on end-of-file (control/Z in DEC-land);  the BASIC version
exits on input of a zero-length string.  Included are tools
for rebuilding the anagram dictionary under RSX and VMS.
Notes: Executable and/or object code is included.
