Anagram Phrases

January 27, 2012

Words that are formed from the same set of letters are anagrams of each other. For instance, pots, post, stop, spot, opts, and tops are anagrams. We studied anagrams in a previous exercise.

Anagrams can be extended from single words to phrases. For instance, “gin grammar prop six” and “maxim prong rasp rig” are anagrams for “programming praxis.”

Your task is to write a program to find all the anagram phrases for an input phrase that are present in a given dictionary; show only one permutation of each set of unique 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.
