I think it can be as simple as this:
use Modern::Perl; open my $WORDLIST, '<', './wordlist.txt' or die $!; my $available = 'AABCDEF'; $available = join '?', sort split '', $available; $available .= '?'; while (<$WORDLIST>) { chomp; my $sorted = join '', sort split ''; say if $sorted =~ /^$available$/io; }
Running this script with your 'AABCDEF' gives me the following results:
abe ace aced baa bad bade be bead bed cab cad cade cafe dab dace deaf deb decaf fab facade face faced fad fade fed
I use a 58,000 elements wordlist and it needed less than a few seconds to generate this result.


A program should be light and agile, its subroutines connected like a string of pearls. The spirit and intent of the program should be retained throughout. There should be neither too little or too much, neither needless loops nor useless variables, neither lack of structure nor overwhelming rigidity." - The Tao of Programming, 4.1 - Geoffrey James

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
