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...
