I would like for this memory card to be sent to me. Does anyone know where it is now?

Hi

I sent it to Gordon Royle last month.

It would be better to write a dvd with all sudoku solution grids rather than all sudz files.

Is there any way I could get a copy of that catalog? Maybe this would be a good candidate for a torrent. (There ARE legitimate uses for torrenting. . .)

I get the following error:

sudoku: sudz SUDZ_WRITE open failure


What am I doing wrong? (WinXP Pro SP3)

It works for me (takes less than a minute). Did you try it from the command line and can you create a file there ?

gsf was not here for a long time and Ron does not seem to have got it by Gordon, so maybe the best way is to invest about 2 weeks (single) cpu time, if you want it. (I did not keep the files, when i changed the computer.)

Yes, I did try it from the command line. It creates a zero-byte file, then gives the error. I even tried it with running the command line as administrator with protection turned off, same results.

Darn! I was hoping that at least one person here would have it. I can invest the two weeks if I can just get it to work. :?

I hope this isn't a case where you need to use %% everywhere the documentation says to use %. The solver's documentation lists when this is necessary. Typically in a batch file.

Code: Select all
cd C:\SuDoku\GSF_back\SuDoKu17

del   out_p.txt
del   out_s.txt

IF NOT EXIST sudoku.exe GOTO FIN

sudoku.exe -f"%%c" %1 > out_p.txt
sudoku.exe -f"%%C" %1 > out_s.txt

:FIN
exit

Ouch, when i tried it now under Windows (7), i got the same error, while it runs fine under linux (with the older 2009-07-17 version).
Though i knew, that Denise needed a special version for his Mac, i had never heard about problems under Windows :(
So i fear, that only Glenn himself can help you, and i don't know any contact address, since he left AT&T.

Maybe the best option is to try to contact dukuso (Coloin should have his address) or JPS, who had the disc.

What do these do, exactly? (I can't even get the help files to write to a file, and I haven't been able to find a manual anywhere, either. And I'm not exactly new to a command line.)

BTW, gsf was on here just this morning, so he's around. I PMed him and asked him to poke his head into this thread.

As said above, i cannot help you with windows.

Under linux it works to generate the grids, at least if you have a 32bit OS version.
With 64 bit i have a problem with the libbz2.so. When i copied a 32 bit version, it created a .sudz file, but could not extract it then.
However i can generate the uncompressed grids, e.g. the last part with
./sudoku-linux.i386 -gb299 -f'%c'
My gsf program version is "sudoku (AT&T Research) 2010-03-15" (attached).

Being on a windows pc now, i saw that generating uncompressed grids also works here.
I created a batch file test.bat with this line:
Code: Select all
sudoku -gb299 -f '%%v' > a.a
Then in a.a the grids of part 299 are in the following form:
Code: Select all
123456789457189623968327145214538967375692418689714352532941876791865234846273591 #     0  C81/S8.f
I don't know now, how to suppress the end of the line, but the manual ("sudoku --help > man.txt") might tell you.
You can try it with the version, Pat posted here.
But no warranty, i stopped the process, when the file became too big for notepad++ (Arrgh, no less or tail here).
