Secret Code Breaker Word Pattern Program. – This is a FREE Zip file download that contains a Windows program (Instructions can be found in the Help menu) and a set of Word Pattern files for words up to 19 letters long.

There is also a ‘crib’ function for cases in which one or more letters of the unknown word are known, thus narrowing down the possibile results. This program is a useful tool for the manual breaking of monoalphabetic ciphertext (Cryptograms). The SCB Word Pattern Program is extremely easy to use and contains a Word List creation program which allows it to be adapted for use with languages other than English.
