Bash script, nice!

Can't try it at work, but will have a look when I'm using a proper OS again.

Not really getting into the wordle hype though. Probably doesn't help that it's exactly the same as a television show that's been on for about 30 years here in The Netherlands.

Quoting: BradleyddarenHello, what is a Wordle-like?
A game inspired by the popular daily online puzzle, Wordle.

There's a UK version these days, called "Lingo", but it's hampered by using some sort of user-created dictionary that I'm guessing they pulled from the internet - sometimes they accept misspelled or non-existent words and then try to claim that they're alternate spellings or archaic words when they're simply not. It's unbearable!
