Hi,
I'm not a very good programmer, but I wanted to make myself something which is sort of a scrabble practise game. Basically it finds a random word, then mixes up the letter and asks me what it is.

So far I have got an AHK script which works on words up to 7 letters long, which will scramble the letters, and a gui to make it useable.
I just need a list of all available words.
(then need to find a way to select a random one.....computers don't like random..)
Anyone know of such a resource?
Of course I could just use a few wordy letters/wepages/e-books, but I want to do it properly..

Thanks

You can download dictionaries from here:
http://wiki.services.open...ice.org/wiki/Dictionaries

The only thing to do with them is opening DIC files and stripping characters after "/" for words (and maybe changing line ends). Those files are the lists of words (1 word per line) sometimes in the form of "abbreviation/M". Nothing hard to fix with RegExp.

Have a look at the program I have made to make up your own wordlists. It's only 92 kB.
