qxw - create and publish crosswords


qxw [options] [file]


This manual page briefly documents the qxw command. Qxw is a program that can help you create and publish crosswords, from the simplest blocked grid to sophisticated thematic puzzles. It can make rectangular-, hexagonal- or circular-format grids with blocks, bars or both. It has an automatic grid-filling facility that can handle a wide range of answer treatments and you can even add your own answer treatment methods. Grids can be filled using letters, digits, or a mixture of both. Qxw can produce output in a range of formats ready for publication. The optional argument is the name of a crossword description file in Qxw's native format to load at start-up.
