Hello.
Your solution with the complement is very good :clap:
Do you plan to extend this to finding sentences of more than two words?
If so, I would not do the equivalent of this:

Code: [Select all] [Download] GeSHi © Codebox Plus

Result.Push(Anagram2 " " Anagram1)

Instead, I propose additional GUI features,
1) Given a selection in the listbox, open a new window with permutations of those words.
2) Copy selection to clipboard.

The ini file doesn't seem to remember the spaces of the input.

I find It slightly addictive, in particular it is fun with names. :lol:

Yes, I do. And I have been working at it already.

Regarding additional GUI features: I can do that, I'll start right now. Then I can release an additional feature of my own that is ready to go: save the position of the text caret to ini-file, and restore it correctly.

Regarding ini-file: Yes, I noticed, and I fixed it with changing Gui, Submit to Gui, Main: Submit in CleanUp()

The version 2.04 will also outline my approach to MultiWordAnagrams rather than have it completed.

I have changed the ListBox to a ListView to support RightClicks with AHK built-in means. Along the way I did not change the generation of WordList that is still a pipe separated list. Maybe I change that later to an array. What do you think?

The popup window is not showing any permutations yet, just the selected Items from the main GUI. Would that be close to what you had in mind?

Next the MultiWordAnagrams() function. That's not done either. I have put in some code (not debugged or tested obviously) that outlines where I'm heading with this function. In order to make progress, I want to write yet another helper function get_Pairs(Keyword, n) where n is the length of the first sibling who is the complement of the second sibling with regard to the given Keyword. I also want to make sure inside this function that the first sibling has a real-word anagram in DICT[].



After reading my own writing of my thoughts concerning the get_Pairs() function, I had an idea ... It's like looking for all anagrams of exactly size n of the given Keyword/String ... pair those up with their complements and Bob's your uncle! 8-) :facepalm:

Quick question, could you give an example for get. Pair function? I'm on the phone, hence the awkward typing.

Edit, I saw your edit now

I saw that you've seen my edit. Maybe it will help me or others when I write down an example anyway.

The idea is to split off subkeys from Keyword (input ="one two three") such that Pair[1] is the keyword("one") and then look for TwoWordAnagrams(Pair[2]) where in this example Pair[2] = keyword("twothree").

My hope is that I can reduce the string length fast enough for the recursion to be practical.

My initial thought is that such an approach would be too limiting. But I haven't looked at the new code yet.

I'm not sure I get this. In your example it looks like you want the complement.

I'd say we should stick with the pipe string, since that is what sort and GuiControl wants. Side note of lesser importance: I think you we can skip the length sort when we do muliple-words anagrams.
The listview and pop-up looks perfect. :thumbup:


Nice touch with enabling the multi-selection. :)

Cheers.

Regarding: Sort
I did not notice at first, your right, it'll be included in the next version. :thumbup:

Regarding: can of worms, aka The deepest Rabbit Hole I have ever encountered.
I'm afraid I might be lost. I have stared into the abyss and now the abyss is staring back ...

I give you a glimpse at where I stand: (failure to progress update)

Code: [Select all] [Expand] [Download] GeSHi © Codebox Plus

I might be onto a practical implementation, I might be miles away. Currently I have split the get_Pairs() function into a trivial part and an loopy part, which should be similar to the tried and tested Combinations(String, Skip) function. I plan to combine the two parts later but for now I keep them separate.

I will give this project a rest of at least 24 hours before I return to it. I look forwards to hearing from you, guidance/spoilers/criticism are all equally welcome.

Re: Anagrams

I'm back! I can find 3,308 multi-word anagrams for "one plus twelve" (0.75 sec, 110k words). 261 anagrams for "who are you" in 0.04 sec, 930 anagrams for "behind blue eyes" in 0.93 sec.
The code is supposed to support more spaces but that's not working yet. And I have to double check if there are duplicates sneaking in somewhere.

This is the get_Pairs() function which I am happy about. The bugs lie in MultiWordAnagrams() where I seem to duplicate the result instead of recursing.

Good job :thumbup:
It is evident that there will a lot of results. It isn't immediately clear too me how you are doing it. I will take a closer look later.

Bonus #1: I have written another helper script to easily view the number of words for each length. Looking at that helped me to change directions for the get_Pairs() function.
Bonus #2: I have also written a Spinner() function which I use for the first time here. It's a careful attempt at using Gdip. Gdip itself is needed but not included in this zip. If you have it in your user library or your standard library, AHK will find it. I'm certain Helgef needs not to be told, others might need to know. Get Gdip from here.



@ Helgef; I'm sure I made no sense before, and maybe contradicted myself along the way too. The code is now cleaned up.

Hello.
Your function is fast, it is very user friendly. However, it seems you miss alot. I did a brute-force attempt, it is slow as molasses (a few minutes), but I find 20000 sentences for eleven plus two. I didn't verify this list though. I'm using the (slightly modified) comine() function I posted earlier in this thread. But there should only be repetions if there are repetions in the input, ofc, I could have made a mistake.

I attach the list if you want it a reference.

Most of it is pretty useless though, like

Code: [Select all] [Download] (Untitled.txt)GeSHi © Codebox Plus

wens lev el po ut

Maybe we should have a better wordlist for this, i.e., with more common words. I do not recognise any of those words. (I'm using the 110k list for this.)

I have peeked at your code, I don't really get the concept of Key, Sibling. I will take a closer look later. But for now, I vastly prefer your methods, because it is fast and the output is useful, I wouldn't want all those wens lev el po ut's in there.

Finally. I didn't see the bonuses, where is the spinner?

Spinner.ahk is in the local library Anagrams\Lib.
Word list - Lengths.ahk is the name of the bonus helper file that calls spinner.
Thanks for the reference file for "elevenplustwo".

I noticed I have not yet included the requested copy to clipboard feature, I do that now.

I had a look at your reference file. I find 1,105 three-word anagrams. I'll look at those for a start, because my algorithm can only compare to this sub-solution. I get the exact same two solutions when I input "elevenplustwo" and add a single space. adding another space gives me 3,315 solutions. I have to write the clipboard feature right now.

:D I remember seeing that spinner/particles before. But the particle class is way over my head. :(



However, it seems you miss alot.
My first impression is there is a difference in output for eleven plus two (containing two spaces).
In the reference file I see the whole series on multi-word anagrams from 2 to 6 words.



Maybe we should have a better wordlist for this
Yes, I was tempted to put in "I" after I saw that "a" was the only single letter word. But the discussion of how to alter a word list is likely done somewhere else already. Word lists for dictionaries, spell checkers, suggestion lists, thesaurus ... I would add a more suitable list in a pinch. After some superficial checks I abandoned most alternatives I tried. I thought littlegandhi1199's 12dicts-6.0.2 would be a good starting point maybe. Well the 12 dicts are obviously not his, but the choice to use them was his. ;)

Edit: Maybe we should use his idea and combine a suitable word list? How did you do yours?

I find permutation in yours, eg,

Code: [Select all] [Download] (Untitled.txt)GeSHi © Codebox Plus

eels uptown lev
uptown eels lev

are both present for eleven plus two.
The code generating the reference file isn't aware of any spaces, they are removed. It will generate the same result for any number of spaces and permutation of eleven plus two. Your code is much quicker than my brute force, even if I stop it at ~1100 matches, when most of the useful results are found.
Edit: Maybe we should use his idea and combine a suitable word list? How did you do yours?

I didn't look too close at littlegandhi1199's code, it wasn't indented, which makes it difficult for me. I do not understand the last question.

Cheers.

There was a Helper.ahk in one of his uploads, which took 4 word lists of his choice and looped through them. Outputs were len4.txt, len5.txt and so on, as well as a reject.txt.

My last question was about wl2.txt, from here. How did you do this word list? Maybe you found it somewhere?



I think I understand where the permutations come from: When I split off a part from Input, I run a 2-words search on its complement.
eleven plus two => eels + uptownlev --- eels is in DICT, look for 2-word anagrams for its complement.
eleven plus two => uptown + eelslev --- uptown is in DICT, look for 2-word anagrams for its complement.
I need to weed out those permutations. Thanks for pointing this out :thumbup:



I think when the permutation are taken care of I will get only 1/3 of the count, which equals your number .. looks promising :D

This weeds out the permutations rather than avoiding them, hmmm :think:
But I now get 1,105 3-word anagrams for eleven plus two but obviously no time benefits over before.
