Perl Jotto

I just thought you should know that you're the No. 1 Google return for 'Perl Jotto'.

Interesting challenge I thought up just now: make a jotto game AI, so that you can really play a game of jotto with the computer.
Me oh my... I really will have to try that.

Kick ass. I should start a list of all the Google searches that turn me up first. "zendobun", "boggle tournament", and now "perl jotto".

There already is a version that lets the computer guess your word. Check out guessjotto.pl in my perl directory on your machine. I have yet to integrate them into one program, though. That was on my list some time ago. Some day, I'll start working on the Jotto stuff again.

Ahh... neat. Your program takes a different approach than the one I had in mind, but it probably works just as well, if not better.

The real test, of course, would involve me writing my program anyway, and then having it play a two-player game with yours. :)

I think there are probably improvements that could be made to the simple algorithm, but I'm not sure if they would buy you all that much. Would be a lot of fun to play around with, though.

If you're actually going to do this, let me know. It might be enough incentive for me to start messing around with it again.
