Why do you ask?  Is this perhaps a homework assignment?

It probably is a big task.

Think through the data you need - clues, answers, word length, grid, etc
Think about the interface - all clues, across or down only, some subset, etc
How to enter words - move between words, move within a word, etc

Are you trying to do this in Pascal?

Hi lauwingmau,

Maybe a start: http://members.tripod.com/~VineetV/crosword.pas

But if you are not an experienced (Pascal) programmer or math geek I agree with mlmcc, the task is too big.

I see.
Can you give me more details about the program?
It's really difficult.
This program(http://members.tripod.com/~VineetV/crosword.pas) can't work.
I want to look at this program and get the idea to do.

I can't tell you more, I found it through a search. It looked like a good start for sombody who has a clear idea. But as mlmcc said, it is a big project.

If you still want some help ask more specific questions.  We aren't prohibited from helping just from doing it for you.

Have you queried your instructor for a starting point?
