Seeking efficiency

Word search coding continues apace.

The current focus is being spent shaving some time off the various methods associated with the knight-like move strategy.

Turns out that allowing words to meander in a crazy way around the grid gives piles and piles of permutations, leading to longer and longer calculation times.

The advantage is that it does make the words a lot harder to find, and they can fit into otherwise impenetrable grids.

Soon I should have something that will spit out a grid given a list of words and a grid size.

Then the real work begins...
