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.

... only if the link I gave you helps. If you feel we weren't too helpful you can ask to get this question deleted and have the points refunded.

mlmcc will be able to help you with that.

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.

Glad I could help

mlmcc

fyi - my initials and start of last name.

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?
