Doing a crossword and no one around to ask about a word, then this instructable is for you. Have not played scrabble since I was a kid. Also like to do crossword puzzles. If everyone uses the same tools, then it really is playing fair.There is an easy way to make the game more interesting and you increase your vocabulary as well as your typing skills at the same time.

Recommended that you have at least some time at the linux command line. These tricks can also be done on the Mac and BSD with minor modifications.

Note: a quick grep trick for finding a file wth certain text is:
