Word Square




Published in the book BBC Micro Programs In BASIC from Newnes Technical Books. The book contains the following description:

Another firm favourite with the children! In fact, the one in our house used to buy whole books of these problems every week until I wrote this program. You can either enter your own choice of words for the kids to find, or they can have the computer choose words from a series of DATA statements – see lines 990 to 1070. You could put your own words in here, but memory space is rather tight and you cannot extend the number of words very much before getting a 'No room' message at run time. This is because of the graphics mode used, and a useful alteration - if you have a printer - would be to have the puzzle printed out on paper rather than on the screen, which would result in an enormous saving of memory.
