Description: I wrote this script to generate an html table of a crossword puzzle for KM. I figure that someone else might need to make a crossword puzzle into a table, so here it is.
#!perl -w
use strict;
# I wrote this to generate a file, not be a cgi script, but you could.
+..
# use CGI.pm; 

open GRID, '>grid.html' or die $!;
select GRID;

print "<HTML><BODY>\n"; 

my $cellwidth = '20';  # pixel or percent
my $cellheight = '4'; # pixels only
my $counter = 0;

sub Solid 
{ 
    return "<TD WIDTH='$cellwidth' HEIGHT='$cellheight' ".
           "BGCOLOR='BLACK'>&nbsp;</TD>\n";
}

sub Open
{
    return "<TD WIDTH='$cellwidth' HEIGHT='$cellheight' ".
           "BGCOLOR='WHITE'>&nbsp;</TD>\n";
}

sub Numbered
{
    ++$counter;
    return "<TD WIDTH='$cellwidth' HEIGHT='$cellheight' BGCOLOR='WHITE
+'".
           "ALIGN='LEFT' VALIGN='TOP'><FONT SIZE=-2>$counter</FONT></T
+D>\n";
}

# These two arrays are used to generate the grid.
# numbers in @line correspond to the functions in @type.
# 0 black box, 1, white box, 2, numbered box.
my @type = ( \&Solid, \&Open, \&Numbered );
my @line = ( 
'020000002000002000000000000',
'010200201021111110000020000',
