RE: Please explain
Message ID:
Keith and all,

	Thanks for the help. I now understand the ways of my confusion! I
did not understand that the input stream also contained the anagrams! I was
under the impression that all anagrams in the input stream had to be found.
Oh well, there's TPR(0.4)! It always helps to fully understand the problem
at hand!

Thanks Again!
