If someone else wants , or feels the need, to take credit for it, well that's the way the cookie crumbles sometimes. It doesn't hurt me at all, only him.

    And if he (you) makes Bill Gates Steve Jobs money doing it, well goood for him. And good for the lawyers John, Paul and I will hire to recover some of it. And good for his defending lawyers too. And good for the world too, benefitting from the new discoveries. Good for PowerBasic when it's known PB was the underlying power that enabled the discoveries. Geez, I really hope you do distribute it, Kerry - the good is unending.{grin} (Have to stop here, all this good karma is just infusing me and upsetting Big Mama's world view.)
    I was merely trying to recognise that you may have discovered stuff.
    As I age, I find myself "discovering" more stuff almost every day. Memory and all that. {grin}

      I looked at the data returned by running Paul's code, and now I see where your 45,412 comes from, Gösta. In that data are duplicates--not duplicate pairs, just duplicate words from different matched pairs. So when those dupes are removed... bam! 28819 unique words as my (#71) no-dupe-code post also shows.

      That's a tri-match assuming your code produces data that exactly matches Paul's, which makes it a virtual certainty it's correct. You'll have to modify a statistic or few to reflect that only 28819 words form anagrams in that 173,528 word database. Eg. that is just 16.6% of the words rather than 26%.

        I'm glad (and comforted) you confirmed that we are in agreement as to the accuracy (not missing any). As for the totals, we are viewing it differently.

        ie aborted - tabored you are counting as one.
        with tabored - aborted I count it as 2.

        It plays out even more in multi word (3 or more) peas - seap - sape which is probably the 1227 dif I noted above.

        In any case, I will go with the higher conts in my stats though I will note there are different ways of counting (your 28.000 is still an astounding number as well - whodda thot?).

        I'm planning to put up a page with a summary of all this stuff and will include in it the Word-Connection program we collaborated on a few years ago as well.

        Neat stuff. Thanks your contribution. I am in awe of the speed of your algo.

            I would probably word it like this:

            Code:
            **************************************************
            **************************************************
            ********************************
            There are 12,368 sets of anagrams containing 28,819 unique words out
            of a 173,528 word list.
            
            For example, "recrates terraces caterers retraces" is one 4-word anagram set,
            where each word within is an anagram of the other three and appears in no
            other set.

                  Good enough for me. Sounds more "professorial" {grin}.

                  ===============================================================
                  I was walking through the woods one day,
                  When I met the wee'ist little elf.
                  Twas sitting under a mushroom tall
                  Twas taller than himself.
                  "How do you do, little Elf Man", I said.
                  "And what do you do all day?"
                  In the most playful childlike voice he said
                  "I dance and scuttle about "
                  "And pway with butterfwies."
                  "And when Mr Mole comes fwoo"
                  "Only just to fwighten him, I jump out and say 'Boo!'"
                  "And what do you think of that?"
                  said the gleeful little he.
                  I said "It makes me sick."
                  "It gives me sharp and shooting pains to listen to such drool."
                  And I lifted up my foot and
                  Squashed that silly little fool.
