    Future reference, if you have cygwin installed, GNU sort is phenominal at sorting large datasets and can even remove dupes. I had one project, it took about 20 hours to churn through the huge amount of data. Decided to pipe it out to GNU surt and it went down to like 30 minutes.

    Of course I could have adapted all the file chunking and whatnot for similar improvements, but figured it was one case I didn't need to reinvent the wheel.

    Cool. I did my old dictionary sort 10 years ago. Probably didn't have cygwin at that time. But i found several online text files pre sorted. The only problem is when looking through it i found that it was limited to 8 characters. So I have a lot of truncated words. like armagead and impossib. So I think im going to try another text file i found and see what it has.

    Most people dont use all the words in the english language anyways.

    So for all of you that tried to download the second alpha. Im sorry. I was positive it was there. I even tried downloading it from home and i was sure it worked. From work I get what you guys get file not found. I will be home in an hour or so and i will repost the file first thing. I'm also almost at my file size limit i guess they only give me 100 megs of space or something. I only have 700k left

    This version is functioning much more quickly! Great work!

    I would suggest cleaning up some more of the non-existant words and also a feature to determine how commonly a word is used. For example, try typing the word "are" ... for me, the word came up way at the end.

    Do you think that there are too many letters per button? It seems that there are a lot of possible words that a certain combination of numbers can spell. I was thinking something like T9 word on cell phones, with 10 numbers.

    I agree that the Cell phone style may also be better (although I havent used your current version), because people are already familiar with the cell phone version of typing things.

    Great program idea though !

    After you use "are" once next time it be at the top of the list. I made it move the most used words to the top of the list. And yes i know way to many wrong words in there. More wrong 3 letter words then anything. But then most words are 3 letters ( are and the how who why can you ) many more. Right now you would be searching for days. Once i get all the bad words out maybe there is a way to set the priority of words........there are a lot of words. I use "stupid" alot in my testing so its at the top of that list Like i was about to say maybe i will go through and try to organise the most popular words to the top of the list.


    okay so cell phones T9 (still cant believe I wrote that 10 years ago should have sold it, kicking self again, and on top of that i cant find the original code ) so T9 is great. Although after seing how fast you could type with tengo. One reason tengo is quick is because you already know the keyboard qwerty layout. Although I know most people (teenagers) have cell phones and use text with T9 alot. I just figured out how to make my cell do T9 It was burried in the phone settings. so um yah i could do T9 next. wouldn't be hard to reconfigure the dictionary files plus if i can find my old code then most of the coding would be done.

    It's not late but im rambling........So for today i started a new VB project so i could figure out my skin layout for quicktype without breaking what i have so far. I'm trying to make it work with the RRSkinEditor ive been modding. So far it loads a preset skin file and returns the correct buttons i press based on the skin file locations.

    Tomorrow i will get back to the grusome task of editing that huge dictionary file.



    edit: I wrote it in 96-97 i wonder if i can sue them? I called it pager code or PCODE. had version 6 by the begining of 97. My damn geocities web site is not up anymore. I had version 5 on there. and who knows where a 10 year old hard drive is. Be fun to sue AOL

    What's all this talk of T9??? Tengo is vastly superior. Watch the video where the chick types 70 WPM or something like that. There are lots of alternative input schemes I have used on Palm/Pocket-PC, T9 is one of the slowest.
