Overview

The program takes a 2D array of lowercase letters (the word search) and a list of words, and returns the same word search with the words in uppercase.

This repository also includes a Python command line implementation of the program, which can be used to solve word searches easily, without code.

Download & Usage

  1. Make sure you have Python installed. Install Python at python.org. Most computers running macOS should have Python pre-installed. Check if you have Python installed by typing the command python and pressing enter in your command prompt or terminal. If a prompt like >>> shows up, then Python is installed.

  2. type the following command into your computer's terminal and hit enter:

    curl https://xtrp.github.io/word_search_solver/word_search_solver.py -o word_search_solver.py
  3. Then, to use this function in other Python programs, simply include this line at the top of your programs:

    execfile("path/to/word_search_solver.py")

    Note that path/to/ in this command should be replaced with the relative path to the word_search_solver.py file from your Python program.
