NPR Sunday Puzzle

February 19, 2013

[ Today is the fourth anniversary of Programming Praxis, which published five exercises on February 19, 2009. I remember getting 6 hits that day, all of them from one friend that I told about the blog. I get a few more hits now. Many thanks to all of my readers, whose comments and emails inspire me to continue. — Phil ]

We haven’t done a word puzzle for a while. Here is one from the NPR Sunday Puzzle:

Think of two familiar, unhyphenated, eight-letter words that contain the letters A, B, C, D, E and F, plus two others, in any order. What words are these?

Your task is to write a program to find the two words. When you are finished, you are welcome to read or run a suggested solution, or to post your own solution or discuss the exercise in the comments below.
