FAQ
I would like to write a wordsearch puzzle game in Python that functions
like this java program:

http://javaboutique.webdeveloper.com/WordSearch/

I would like it to be cross platform (Linux, Windows, Mac).

I don't know how to get the graphics effect with a bounding box around
the words.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Look for pygame (http://www.pygame.org/). It's great and crossplatform,
    although I think Mac OS 9 support is lagging a bit behind.

    I did not want to use an external module. I've been trying to do it with
    a Tkinter canvas.

    It shouldn't be that difficult to do. When the user clicks the mouse on
    one letter, that letter become an anchor and as the mouse moves I need
    to determine which letters intersect the imaginary line connecting the
    current mouse position to the anchor and draw the bounding box around
    those letters.

    The problem is I don't know how to do it using Tkinter canvas events.
