Word Scrambler

Post by JackHurst » Sun Sep 26, 2010 1:39 pm

Does anyone know a site where I can just paste a list of words, and the letters in each word will be scrambled into a random order? There was one good one which I found, but now its gone.

I don't want sites that make you enter the words individually, or that keep the first and last letters of the word in the same place. Cheers xxx

I could probably concoct such a thing, if you don't find one.

I'm surprised I'venot managed to find another yet to be honest, as it seems like something a computer pro would be able to whip up in 20 minutes or so. Maybe I just need to refine my googling skills.

I've made one with Javascript, but I have nowhere to upload it. Give me your email and I'll send you the file.

Just paste the words into this thread and the Baxterbot or Robinsonbot will do it.

By listening in school, and being intelligent enough to understand computer programming. Easy.

Isn't it odd that you go to different schools when you live in the same house and your email address has his name in it?

Not sure what all this is about.

Robert, why the hell did you answer a question aimed at me? :x

Robert doesn't have an email and we meet up regularly so I let him use mine.

But we do not live at the same address.

Oh, and my school does computing, but only in the sixth form.

Why doesn't Robert have his own Email?
Also, you didn't say he doesn't have internet access, so assuming he does, why are all yours and his posts coming from the same IP?

Haha, Robert and Rhys (whichever one you actually are), everyone knows you're the same person. Pick one account and stick to it please.
