Telephone Words Scrabble Challenge


I loved programming in Delphi many years ago and still subscribe to a “Delphi for Fun” newsletter. It was in one of these newsletters that I read about the “Telephone Words” challenge where you have to find the words in a dictionary that would correspond to the presses of the keys on a telephone.

As an extension to this I was thinking I would modify the challenge so the program has to prompt for the keys to press and it then has to find the word(s) that has/have the maximum Scrabble value.

I must admit — it would be an interesting challenge. Anyone care to give it a go?
