Well, the idea is you're given a set of words that will fit into such a grid.

As for your request, I think it wouldn't be too challenging to write such a program. I shall try now.

    Actually, I started writing a program to do just that a few months ago. I don't think I ever finished it, and I think now it's gathering dust in the rather large ~/scripts playground on my laptop.

    I'll have to try to dig it up when I get home, unless you post your better, faster and more elegant solution first. :)
