WOW! Now 30% faster than JSolve on top1465.

Greetings all,

First, sorry if I am annoying, I did try to share all my code.

Second, though I am in still semi-retirement due to my job taking too many hours a week, but I wanted to see Zhou's latest program. If Jason says it is 30% faster, than that is quite a feat. I have not had time to test it myself yet, maybe over the weekend.

Thank you for fixing those bugs. I've also tested your solver against the gen500k test set and it worked.

Of course, if one wants to use it for more general problems some modifications (I mentioned them before) have to be made and the cumbersome compiling procedure with Update.c should be removed.

If you change code in Update.c, recompile is the better way than rewrite each place.
and if you change other code, you needn't open __ProgramWritter.
For example, you want write
Code: Select all
   for (int i = 0; i < TestCaseNumber; i++)
   {
      memcpy(Board, AllBoard[i], 81);
      InitSodoku();
      if ((Answer = Calculate()) != UniqAnswer)
         continue;
   }

you needn't redo the 3 steps.

1 where to download top1465? you can send to my e-mail lao_zhouxi9@163.com 3Q
2 is top1465 the most difficult?

Usually the solver is just a small (but important) part of a larger program where the solver is just one tool you use. So you won't rewrite the solver that often. For example, I've been using JSolve for over 2 years and I probably changed it only 4 or 5 times. It can be easily modified to solve Sudokus of abitrary size, it's easy to compile and works on Windows and Linux.

Your solver is fast but currently it's just written too specifically for a certain problem, is tedious to compile and it works only for a fixed number of Sudokus but usually you want to solve millions, billions or trillions of Sudokus but that problem shouldn't be too hard to fix.

I find a new way to Guess, I think it will be more fast for difficult case, but some slower for easy case.

I think hard to let U means Uniq in a row not a 3*3grid. I at last find a way.

Yes ,that is not hard to fix. But I haven't time to do it for I am thinking how to Guess effeciently. And I think I got it now.

I have also made a visible software,it includes Killer, GT/LT, Extra, and Mix of them.
But I don't know how to post it here.

I am happy to get this conclusion:

111 110 000
000 000 010
011 001 000

//Shrink
011 100 011 => 000 100 000 (TblShrinkSingle)
//Column
111 111 010 => 100 100 100 (TblColumnSingle)

And of them
===> 000 100 000

000 100 000 => 010 (TblShrinkLow)

010 means the second Row is Uniq
