    I am about to undergo a little project and while i can make one myself, i am wondering if anyone knows where i can find/d.l a txt file which has a huge listing with thousands of words in it - pretty much all the words you would expect to find in an english dictionary.

    Alphabetical order is preferred, although it doesnt really matter as it is all going into an binary search tree anyway.

    -thnx

    Do a google search on brute force dictionary or brute force hacking

    Something along those lines, and you should get what you need.

    there are a couple here.

    this is thnx to u logistics. Although brute force search didnt get me what i wanted, i realised that what i was looking for is more commonly referred to as a "word list"

    cheers.

    I'm a bit late but there's a wordlist in some (if not all) linux distros located at /usr/share/dict/words...well it's there in slackware at least. Has 38619 words in alphabetical order. Enjoy!

    Once you hit over 6 digits it gets somewhat inefficent.

    Uh, Assuming we want lower case + upper case + numbers, thats 62 different letters, say 64 or 2^6 for simplicty sake.

    1 letter = 2^6 or 64
    2 letters = 2^12 or 4096
    3 letters = 2^18 or 262,144
    4 letters = 2^24 or 16,777,216
    5 letters = 2^30 or 1,073,741,824
    6 letters = 2^36 or 68,719,476,736
