Note the distinction betweeen this page and one's opening of The Age at the Target puzzle where a 3-by-3 array of letters represents an anagram of a nine-letter word:-
In The Age, one can gaze at the anagram array until there yields in one's mind's eye the word. In the absence of such a yield one can, with or without pencil, linearise the nine letters in various ways.
[I know that you have NO interest in being told the 9-letter word for the 9-letter anagram which puzzles you. Pretend that you know nothing about a web-site such as
The tool for The Age 9-letter anagram
Here's the tool which displays the nine letters of the anagram in a 3-by-3 array:-
This button allows you to re-arrange the letters in the square in many ways:-
[Note that the tool offers one nothing more than some save in time and effort with pencil and paper. After all, the 9-letter word that one seeks is one of a list of some 25 thousand 9-letter words!]
in the background, so to speak, in the source code;
Note that the button includes an HTML form to display the output from the code.
Exercise. With successive pressings of the button are you producing new anagrams every time from the given value of digits, or, are you using every production of an anagram to produce the next anagram? Would the difference matter?
Choosing a 9-letter word randomly from a list of 9-letter words
Exercise. In the JS Workspace, immediately above or in the banner, define a short sequence of 9-letter words and add code, separately I guess, to:
find the number of words in the list;
select one of the words at random;
permute one of the words into an anagram.
My finding lists of words began with
Finally, let us randomly select a word from the list, transform it randomly into an anagram, and load it into the 3-by-3 square above:-

For a great tool use Chrome with tompaton.com where you will find his/her nine-letter word puzzle. It is both a tool and the full solutions (2-letter, 3-letter, ..., 9-letter).
