WHAT Documentation (18-Jul-19)

WHAT, Wolfberg's Helpful Anagramming Tool, is really a toolbox of powerful tools, with many facilities. You can make effective use of WHAT right away by using just a few of its features, and the document "WHAT's First - Getting Started Using WHAT" introduces these features. If you prefer to use a much shorter document, see the one-page blurb "WHAT Common Queries Reference Sheet"; it can indeed fit on one sheet of paper if you print the MS Word form of this blurb, what_common_queries.doc.

You may find these basic features are all you need to employ to benefit by its use, but WHAT provides a wealth of other facilities which we suggest you explore when you have a chance. Since the product was released, we are aware that its thorough documentation is desirable, and we have wanted to provide more than is available. It is our intention and hope to continue to provide more documentation as time goes on. The available time to do this will be balanced with providing user support as many users begin to use it. It is out intention that some of this documentation be accessible within the program itself. At the moment, there is precious little on-line help. Despite these apologies, there is considerable documentation today.

NOTE - the examples throughout the WHAT documentation are based on the OWL3 Lexicon, the previous lexicon for North American SCRABBLE®.

The following WHAT documentation is available:
