ketel_one, a FORTRAN90 code which seeks all words that can be formed from the letters in "ketel one vodka".

The following challenge appeared in an advertistement in the New York Times, 14 June 2007:

"Dear Ketel One Drinker: Can you make one hundred words, of four letters or more, from the letters in Ketel One Vodka?"

The letters cannot appear in a new word more often than they appear in the original phrase. So "leek" is OK (there are 3 e's available), but "noon" is not (there is only one n).
