The Java anagram applet is no longer available. However you can download a native version for Windows 10 from the Microsoft Store.
If you like this anagram generator please place a link to http://legacy.martinmamo.com/anagram.html on your web page.
Simply enter the phrase or name you want anagrammed and then click on the Anagram Now button.
When 100 anagrams have been generated in the text box, the program will stop anagramming until you click on the Next 100 Anagrams button. When you click on this button, the text box will be cleared of past anagrams and it will start again where it left off.
Don't just rely on my applet to give you the anagram you want on a plate! The more letters you enter the slower the applet will run and the more junk anagrams you will have to sift through to get a good one. For example, if your phrase contains the letters I, M and A remove them before entering the letters in. Afterwards you can add I'M A to every anagram that gets produced. If you remove the letters I, M and A from my name and enter in MRTN STUART AMO instead of MARTIN STUART MAMO then one of the the anagrams produced will be SMART TROUT MAN and you can add the I'M A to produce Man, I'm a smart trout!
The word list this applet uses is quite small at only just over 19,000 words. This small size does limit the quality of anagrams it produces.

Back in 1995, I wrote some simple software to generate anagrams on an Apple Macintosh. It was a rather naive implementation and was written as a simple character based console application. I always meant to change the data structures it used to make it go faster and add a nicer interface, but somehow I never got round to it.
Well finally, as of October 1997, I've got round to updating the thing. Instead using the programming language C, I have used Java and hence the Java applet you can see at the top of this page. All I can say is that Java definitely makes programming easier with its automatic garbage collection. After almost 3 years of doing it myself in C, it's a nice change!
|I submitted this applet to the Java Applet Rating Service (JARS) and it was given a rating of 825 out of a possible 1000. A pleasing result for my first ever applet!|
