SYNOPSIS

lexter [ -v | -h | -s | -d dictionary ]

DESCRIPTION

Lexter is a real-time word puzzle. Arrange the falling letters into words to score points. Words can be formed in any direction except diagonal. Palindromes are counted twice (forwards and backwards). Lexter supports multiple dictionaries. Letter scores and frequencies will vary with each dictionary. In addition to the characters found in the dictionary there is a "blank" character. Anytime before the character has landed you can press a key to assign it a valid letter.
