The rules
Start with a 4 letter word.
Change any ONE letter each time to make a new word, e.g. team changes to seam.
You can't mix the letters up, e.g. team changed to meal is not allowed.

1. Post no more than once a page or 24 hours per member, whichever comes first.
2. No repeated words.
3. No curse words.
4. Must be a legitimate English word.
5. No words unfit for Scrabble (i.e. proper names etc.)
6. The person that comes up with a word that no one can change into another word is the winner.

fling! is 5 letters, and doesn't follow the "rules".

We're playing this game over at FiddleForum. It's helpful to copy and paste the word list everytime someone posts, just add your new word at the bottom of the list. That way it's easier to avoid duplicates. (It also makes page turns come sooner! [Smile] )

bout

(Hmmm... someone snuck "Mars" in there. Last I checked that was someone's name and a planet's name, which makes it a proper noun, something Scrabble doesn't allow. That breaks the rules! [Razz] )

Yes, and mine is listed twice, alphabetizing them made that stand out.

sort isn't working on my computer (think it's the fact my terminal is in unicode mode ???), so I wrote a quick one w/o error checking, that calls STL's sort.

code:
#include <iostream>
#include <string>
#include <vector>
#include <algorithm>

using namespace std;

int main()
{
string word;
vector<string> v;
while(cin)
{
cin >> word;
v.push_back(word);
}
sort(v.begin(),v.end());
for(vector<string>::iterator i = v.begin(); i != v.end();++i)
{
cout << *i << " ";
}
return 0;
}

If anyone wants to use it, every page or so...

you insult our intelligence! those of us who cook know that roux is a French term for the start of a basic white sauce. remember, it's in that link you posted with the recipe for apple mac 'n cheese?!

/me is too tired to capitalize properly, so your forgiveness is appreciated!
