Make your own word search puzzle

Word search puzzle generator
This page allows you to create word search puzzles using your
words.
It has been used by many types of people, with teachers
and students being groups that stand out.
Please enter a set of words.
When you are
done, hit the “Puzzle” button to generate a word search puzzle.
Once the puzzle is displayed, you can use the “Printable HTML” or
“Printable PDF” buttons to get a clean page suitable for printing
with your web browser.
The puzzle that is generated will remain on this server for about
two months.
If you want to ensure that you have
a copy of the generated puzzle, make sure you save a copy.
If you have any comments or questions, feel free to leave
a message with:
wordsearch@armoredpenguin.net
When you generate your puzzle, you will have the opportunity to see
an answer key as well as list the puzzle where others can see it.
Please keep the listed
puzzles to a “G” type rating so that people of any age can enjoy them.
Also, only list puzzles of general use.
Classmate names are not interesting
to anyone outside of the class, while a vocabulary test might well be
interesting to the general public.
You can see the
currently listed puzzles.
I have taken some of those puzzles that people have listed, and
put them into a Best Of… listing.
Enter a word list.
If you want, you can call up an
Alphabet chart
to use for cutting and pasting letters that are hard to type.
This chart will
come up in a separate window.
Some people find this word list form too small, or want to have hidden
words.
There is another form with many more words,
but large puzzles will take a long time to generate.
Be patient.
Tip:
To make puzzles harder, use the
alternate
input form, and create misspelled words.
Use the checkbox next to these
words so that they are not listed in the wordlist for the puzzle.
I originally wrote a word search generator long ago for a
contest put on by a
magazine called Micro Cornucopia.
It is long since
dead, and unfortunately nothing has risen to take its place.
However, this program has lived on in a variety of forms.
Over the years, I’ve received many messages from students, teachers,
and parents who have used the program for school work as well as
a way to give a pleasant diversion from the normal grind.
I have some other programs that might also interest you:

Majorodomo – A Web front end for a popular mailing list server
The majordomo mail list server is a quite popular.
Unfortunately
many people cannot seem to get themselves off of a mailing list to the
annoyance of all.
The
majordomo
CGI program is a simple program which generates requests to the appropriate
majordomo server.
This program does not even need to be installed on your
server to make use of it.
math
The math program is a simple CGI program
to generate arithmetic problems based upon certain parameters
that the user can select.
nobanner
The nobanner program is a simple web proxy server
which can be configured to rewrite HTML files on the fly to remove
things that you consider annoying such as advertisements.
The rewriting
rules are Perl, so some knowledge of Perl regular expressions is useful.
People’s home page index generator
The php package is a simple program to generate
a web page for all of the people on the system who currently have
defined web pages.
Use select list to go to new pages
The pulldown program is a simple program to make
a Go button work after selecting a web page.
Using hacks, the Go button is optional, but at least available.
A random image generation program
The randimg program is a trivial program to generate
an image from a directory of images each time it is called.
Register – A web registration system
This program
sets up a simple web based registration system.
People can sign up for your web site.
Their application is
put into a work queue.
The administrator can choose to accept
or reject the application.
Once accepted the password file
associated with the .htaccess file is updated and the
user can then get to your site.
If you choose, you can configure
the program so that all applications are automatically accepted.
Taskmanage – A task management system
The taskmanage package
manages a collection of outstanding tasks.
This allows people to submit bug reports, get them
assigned to appropriate workers, have the workers complete
the tasks and mark them as done.
If needed, the list
of completed tasks can be reviewed, or if needed,
a custom program can look through the completed tasks
and generate summary reports.
This package is very much a work in progress.
Webc – A Simple Web Compiler
The
webc
program is a simple preprocessor which adds a few
commands to standard HTML.
This allows some of the features of Server Side Includes such
as file inclusion, but done once instead of when the file is
sent to the client by the server.
The syntax is more remenisent
of the C preprocessor than of SSI.
Webc also allows perl code to be called from your HTML files.
This allows you to have stock boilerplate text but
have custom HTML generated by code inserted into the appropriate
places.
The webc can also be used (with restrictions) in a CGI environment.
This allows most of the HTML code to …

If you see improvement in the instructions, those corrections are welcome as
well.

Crossword puzzle maker

The Crossword puzzle maker is used to make simple crossword puzzles.
It turns out that good crossword puzzles of the type
found in newspapers are fairly hard to generate, and require
a pool of lots of words, not all of which are used.
This program puts all of the words you specify (no more, no less)
into a simple crossword puzzle.
The puzzle that is generated will remain on this server for about two months.
If you want to ensure that you have a copy of the generated puzzle,
make sure you save a copy.
The first part of this is for you to enter a list of words
and clues.
Once that part is done, hit the Make Puzzle button for a puzzle
which incorporates your words.
For puzzles with more than about 15 words, this
takes a long time (measured in minutes).
As the number of words
increases, the wait increases exponentially.
Tip:
You can put clues in with almost any character set.
See the
Peace
puzzle for an example.
The characters are represented as UTF-8 which allows many different
character sets.
PDF generation doesn’t work well for puzzles with non-latin characters.
In addition, having the answers as non-latin characters may give
inconsistant results.
