Guys please please PLEASE do help me with this project as it counts towards 20% of my exam score and I can't afford to flunk it.
I need to write a crossword program in Pascal, the crossword should be read from an external file THAT HAS NOT BEEN FORMATTED as the program should be designed so that it throws in the correct letters to the correct spaces. The program then asks a user to choose the word he's like to solve and displays the corresponding hint.
To start off, I don't know how you can even draw the grids of the crossword puzzle, let alone how to make the correct hints (which are all kept in an external file) show up upon entering the choice. Then I can't seem to find crossword puzzles small enough to fit my teacher's requirement---no more than 12x12.
*Sigh* The project is due on 20 December and I can't seem to think of anything! Please enlighten me!
All and any help is highly appreciated!
