(In reply to fast solo wins game by ed bottemiller)

The isWord function was part of the source code:


Function isWord(w)
 low = 1: high = highRec
 Do
  mddl = Int((low + high) / 2)
  Get #1, mddl, w2
  If w2 > w Then high = mddl - 1
  If w2 < w Then low = mddl + 1
  If w2 = w Then Exit Do
 Loop Until low > high
 If w = w2 Then isWord = True Else isWord = False
End Function

using random access into a file of 4-letter words, obtained from a source such as brianjn mentioned.
