That's quite a project! Here's one: http://answers.google.com/answers/threadview/id/380173.html. If you need the explanation, it uses the following as a basis: http://www.codeproject.com/KB/recipes/Magic_Square.aspx which comes with quite an extensive treatise.

Well, I assume that displaying the square can be done anyway you like. Surely, you don't ask me to write the whole project? ;-)

You can use rand() for pseudo random numbers. They are well explained in this post: http://www.daniweb.com/forums/thread1769.html#
