Used DOS program NAMEGRAM and selected two-word anagrams via:


OPEN "d:\anagrams\sorriera.nmg" FOR INPUT AS #1
OPEN "sorriera.txt" FOR OUTPUT AS #2
DO
       INPUT #1, l$
       l$ = LTRIM$(RTRIM$(l$))
       ix = INSTR(l$, " ")
       IF ix > 0 THEN
           IF INSTR(ix + 1, l$, " ") = 0 THEN
                PRINT #2, l$
                PRINT l$
           END IF
       END IF
LOOP UNTIL EOF(1)

           CLOSE
