Wordsearch is, well, a wordsearch program in Java written by myself and Matthew Vreeke. It allows for the creation of wordsearch puzzles. The program comes in two parts, an administrative program and a client. The administration program places the words and creates the puzzle files. The client can open these files and solve the wordsearch. This program would be particularly usefull in an educational environment.

Unfortunantly, this program has a a major flaw in its drawing code that prevets it from painting properly on a windows box, and due to deadlines, a repair was not possible. A large restructuring job is ahead to fix this. Fortunantly, the programs work fine under Mac OS X and Linux. Nonetheless, this program exibits some interesting design structures that somone may find interesting. If anybody wants to fix the paint problem, I would be overjoyed.
