This script uses the bogglesolver module to generate solutions to the
boggle grids entered by a user. The bogglesolver's internal dictionary is
created once when the object is initialized. It is then reused for
subsequent solution searches.
The user is prompted to input a string of x*y characters, representing the
letters in a X by Y Boggle grid. Use the letter 'q' to represent "qu".
For example: "qadfetriihkriflv" represents the 4x4 grid::
| Qu| A | D | F |
| E | T | R | I |
| I | H | K | R |
| I | F | L | V |
The default reference dictionary is included boggle_dict.txt, which is used
if no dictionary is specified on the command line. This dictionary
includes plurals to words, which most dictionaries do not.
