Lexy, A Scrabble®-playing Bot

Hi, you've found the webpage for a Scrabble® bot written in OCaml.

To run it most easily, you'll need OCaml installed on your system. Try running the compile.sh script that comes in the gzipped tarball. Ignore warnings about escaped backslashes. The script should produce an executable called program.exe on your system, which you can then run.
