Finding Matching Words In A Word Game

Hello,

is there maybe a clever way of finding all possible words from a given set of letters by means of PostgreSQL (i.e. inside the database vs. scanning all database rows by a PHP script, which would take too long) – if the dictionary is kept in a simple table like:

create table good_words (
    word varchar(16) primary key,
    stamp timestamp default current_timestamp
);

I could add a column above, where same letters as in “word” would be sorted alphabetically… but then I don’t know. I’ve described my question in more detail at http://stackoverflow.com/questions/15220072/PostgreSQL-and-word-games

Thank you for any suggestions Alex
