Perl Lab - jumble
Due: Thursday, September 16 at 11:59PM


You are given these 2 files: dictionary.txt and jumbles.txt

The jumbles.txt file contains a bunch of scrambled words. Your job is to print out those jumbles words, 1 word to a line. After each jumbled word, print a list of real dictionary words that could be formed by unscrambling the jumbled word. The dictionary words that you have to choose from are in the dictionary.txt file.

Here is a screenshot of a sample run using the 2 input files above:
