WORDS(6)				   Games Manual 				 WORDS(6)

NAME
       hangman, words - word games

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/games/hangman [ dict ]

       /usr/games/words

DESCRIPTION
       Hangman chooses a word at least seven letters long from a word list.  The user is to guess
       letters one at a time.

       The optional argument names an alternate word list.  The special name `-a' gets a particu-
       lar very large word list.

       Words prints all the uncapitalized words in the word list that can be made from letters in
       string.

FILES
       /usr/dict/words		the regular word list
       /crp/dict/web2	   the the -a word list

DIAGNOSTICS
       After each round, hangman reports the average number of guesses per round and  the  number
       of rounds.

BUGS
       Hyphenated compounds are run together.

       UNIX software is distributed without the -a word list.
