Wordle-solving code

I took some time to write code to solve Wordle-like guessing games. It was a fun problem to work on. I posted my code on Gitlab in the Wordfinder repo.

The funnest part was working on the eliminative word solver, which tries to bisect the list of candidate words with each guess. It performed pretty well.

The eliminative solver suggests that the best startwords are TARES or CARES, but only if you can do a lot of probability math in your head.
