Crosslexic is a tool that lets you solve those elusive words in crossword puzzles.
Knowing only the length of a word and a few characters inside it, Crosslexic will scan through its dictionary looking for words that match these characters in their known positions and produce a list of matching words.
This is ideal for solving crosswords puzzles. It's also called cheating!
You could use a Thesaurus or even the Unix grep command, however a rich personal vocabulary will always serve you better in life.
But sometimes one comes so close to solving a crossword puzzle that it is almost criminal to leave it that way. That is why I wrote this - to keep the peace.
