In the news from two weeks ago, there was a puzzle posted to CGP
from Ron McGill, a CA Scrabbler. Here is a similar puzzle from him:
  Put a letter in front of each seven letter stem to form a word.
  Each stem has three solutions.
  For example  ACHETED makes: CACHETED, RACHETED, and SACHETED

   1. ANDLESS,  2. ANDORAS,  3. ANDYING,  4. ANGIEST,  5. ANISHES,
   6. ANISTER,  7. ANITIES,  8. ANKNESS,  9. ANNIKIN, 10. APERERS,
  11. APERING, 12. APIDITY, 13. ARBLERS, 14. ARBLING, 15. ARDIEST,
  16. ARIOLES, 17. ARLINGS, 18. ARLOCKS, 19. ARMENTS, 20. ARNINGS,
  21. ARTIEST, 22. ARTLETS, 23. ASEMENT, 24. ASHINGS, 25. ASHLESS,
  26. ASSIEST, 27. ASTABLE, 28. ASTEFUL, 29. ATCHETS, 30. ATEABLE,
  31. ATELESS, 32. ATHERED, 33. ATHLESS, 34. ATTENER, 35. ATTERER,
  36. ATTINGS


Chris K. noticed there is a 10-letter word which can formed from
duplicating the letters of a 5-letter word, and that word is HORSE
(or an anagram). It turns out there are five other such 10-letter
words; none of these are repetitious words like MAHIMAHI. In two
of these fives there is a duplicated letter, so the resulting
ten has four of the same letter. To have WHAT find the answers,
use these two commands:
5.#      // to get all 5-letter words and just show the count
[][] /A  // for each word found, duplicate it and anagram
