I would suggest that it's been more of, 

perl -nle 'push @{$x{uc substr($_,0,1)}}, $_;END{p("TMTOWTDI",\%x)}sub p {my $a=shift;my $h=shift; my $w=shift;$w=[] unless $w;my $letter = substr($a,0,1);$a=substr($a,1);foreach my $word (@{$h->{$letter}}){ if ($a) {p($a,$h,[@$w,$word])} else {print join " ", @$w, $word} }}' /usr/share/dict/words

But, what do I know? ;-)
