NAME

       an - Anagram generator

SYNOPSIS

       an  [-w]  [-c  string]  [-d dictionary] [-l number_words] [-m word_length] [-u string] [-n
       number_anagrams] [--words] [--contain string] [--dict dictionary] [--length  number_words]
       [--minimum  word_length]   [--used string] [--number number_anagrams] [--help] [--version]
       PHRASE

DESCRIPTION

       an finds all anagrams which can be made from the letters in PHRASE,  using  words  in  the
       specified dictionary (default=/usr/share/dict/words).

       -u, --used string
              Considers that letters in string have already used when analyzing letters in PHRASE

       -l, --length number_words
              Finds anagrams which have a maximum of number_words words in them, very useful when
              number of anagrams output is large.

       -n, --number number_anagrams
              Specifies number_anagrams as the maximum number of anagrams to find.

       --help Print a usage message on standard output then exit

       --version
