Version 0.3 update of "yawl" word list pkg

Post by M. Leo Coope » Thu, 26 Jun 2003 05:10:01



Announcing the 0.3 version update of the YAWL word list package. This is
with the intention of -- and it already has -- encourage to development
of anagramming word games for Linux.

     Why indeed is there even a need for Yet Another Word List? The
     notorious "linux.words" list, the public domain "Websters 2", the
     ispell and cracklib dictionaries, not to mention various and sundry
     purported Scrabble (R) lists are already available in electronic
     form. None of these, though, are optimized for word game use and as
     comprehensive as the YAWL. At 264,057 words, this list subsumes the
     SOWPODS list beloved of international Scrabble (R) players. There
     is no arbitrary word length cutoff, and even words longer than 20
     letters find a place in the list.

1. Definition of "word" in zsh (e.g., "backward-kill-word")

Is it possible to change the definition of a "word" in zsh? I'm used to
the tcsh definition, which excludes characters like "/" as "letters"
in a word. E.g, when I have the following string on the command line

        /usr/local/lib/zdsh

with a typo in the last word, under tcsh I can hit "Meta-Backspace"
and delete just the "zdsh" part. However, under zsh, the default
behavior seems to be to delete the entire string.

Is it possible to change this?
