Terminal-based crossword puzzle solving interface

Cursewords is a "graphical" command line program for solving crossword puzzles in the terminal. It can be used to open files saved in the widely used AcrossLite .puz format.

Cursewords includes nearly every major feature you might expect in a crossword program, including intuitive navigation, answer-checking for squares, words, and full puzzle, a pausable puzzle timer and a puzzle completeness notification.

It is currently under active development, and should not be considered fully "released." That said, it is stable and suitable for everyday use.
