        Well, I am not a program, but I often use /usr/share/dict/words
 (I have not yet been able to train my fingers not to look for
 /usr/dict/words) directly, and also as test data for code snippets i

        We should not change out aspects of the system that users have
 come to depend on, if it can be helped.

Exercise caution in your daily affairs.
