Some notes on Wordle:
- It tracks the daily Wordle, but only if you have a real-time clock
- The clock needs to be in GMT+11 to track exactly (the same timezone where the real Wordle changes over at midnight) otherwise it'll be a different time of day
- It doesn't keep statistics or give instructions. I ran out of motivation to add more stuff to it
- It probably doesn't work well on fancy machines
- This is my first serious GEM program

Nice. Thanks.

Does it contain the original wordle word list? Or the new one that NYT has edited to remove certain words? The latter would be best to remain in sync.

I've never written a GEM program, was it easy to set up the development environment?

It's the current NYT word list, so no AGORA.

I made setting up the environment challenging for myself by using vanilla gcc and writing my libtos from scratch. I also used c++ and wrote the runtime. So this was also motivational to improve those old unfinished projects as well. I wouldn't recommend doing things that way unless like me you enjoy learning about bare metal stuff.
