I had posted couple of weeks ago about my intention to write a program to solve the sudoku puzzle. Now I have implemented it incorporating the Elimination, Naked Pair and Unique Member technique. I have also created a UI for the program to enable users to enter and solve the puzzles. I have to accept the fact that the UI is not that snappy, but it is good start to begin with.
Lang: Java 1.5
UI: Java Swing
Puzzle fromThe Hindu (Dated 17-Aug-2005)
Shown are given values and the possibilities for the rest of the cells
Solution by using elimination technique
If you want to try your hand, do drop in an email/comment, I will mail you the binaries and the src code.
