Cryptogram Solver

At the risk of turning my site into a complete nerdfest, this entry is going to be totally devoted to my next programming project.

When I took CSE 373, our final project involved a graph search algorithm. This project wasn't very hard at all, considering the fact that we were given the algorithm in English / pseudo code and instructed to implement it. This sort of algorithm (or rather, the way this sort of algorithm can use a tree to pictorally represent the search pattern) inspired me in thinking about a way to solve cryptograms with a computer program.

So far, here's what I've got:

Now to implement this beast...
