Tools for generating solutions and starting grids for Sudoku.

Project description

sudokulib is a collection of tools that are useful for generating solutions to Sudoku puzzles. It uses a recursive backtracking algorithm (originally written by Jeremy Brown, Cel DeşŸtept), and is capable of generating a 3x3 Sudoku in ~0.015 seconds. It can also generate 4x4 Sudokus in ~0.100 seconds (sometimes longer).

Some 5x5 grids have been generated in a matter of seconds using this library, but I’ve also seen the program run for hours without successfully generating a 5x5. Anything beyond 5x5 always seems to take a long time.

The library also provides utilities for generating starting grids, so you can play Sudoku instead of just generating solutions. There are several difficulty levels to choose from.
