asked on

dictionary file I can download

I've seen the online dictionaries.  Is there a dictionary file I can use in my program?  I don't need definitions - just a list of words.  I'm trying to write a newspaper "Jumble" game descrambler.  Trying to learn some more languages (java & perl currently).

I was not clear that I needed an English dictionary.   Some of the solutions also gave me a dictionary program when all I wanted was a text file that was a list of English words.

If you think the points should go elsewhere; give them - I'm not in this for the points.

I just wanted to close the question so nobody worked on something I think is solved.
