 Sourcing the Start (Posted on 2013-01-21)
 Part A Part B S I P Y ? E E ? E A R ? T ? I P ? O R T A L R E

Find the starting point and track from letter to adjacent letter horizontally and vertically, but not diagonally, for each of the above to spell out a twelve letter word. Each of the vacant cells must be filled with a letter, whether same or different. Every letter per cell (for each of the parts) must be used.

FOR xmpl = 1 TO 2
OPEN "\words\words12.txt" FOR BINARY AS #1
w\$ = SPACE\$(12)

GET #1, , w\$
IF EOF(1) THEN EXIT DO
s\$ = w\$
good = 1
FOR i = 1 TO LEN(musthave\$)
ix = INSTR(s\$, MID\$(musthave\$, i, 1))
IF ix = 0 THEN good = 0: EXIT FOR
s\$ = LEFT\$(s\$, ix - 1) + MID\$(s\$, ix + 1)

NEXT xmpl

is designed to find all those 12-letter words that contain all the letters in a given puzzle, repeating any repeated letters at least as many times as present in the given table. It finds for the two puzzles:

arsenopyrite
cryptomerias
perspiratory
praiseworthy

ephemerality
experiential
experimental
impenetrable
interpellate
preferential
preliterates
telegraphies

Inspection shows that the two words that can be formed are praiseworthy and experimental.
