Thks to you Yanick, and to Stephen. I think the answer to my question is so 
obvious you cannot imagine I do not know it, or maybe the question was badly 
Let me expose it again:
done "feeling", sort/./g give "eefgiln" ... ok
My question : why these programs choose to print "fleeing" and not "feleing" 
or "leefing" or another letters permutation ? I suppose there is a dictionary 
anywhere, who say "feleing is not a good word, fleeing is a good one".  Where 
is it, what is this magic mechanism? Is it a Perl functionality, if yes where 
is it described?
