for help about gsf,suexratt,sudoku so

Postby skysea575 » Wed Jul 24, 2019 2:22 am

On http://magictour.free.fr/sudoku.htm, see a piece of software, there are a lot of people use, but I didn't find the software instructions, who will help me to write a manual? Thank you very much.

The name of the software:
a1) sudoku-rating, new program; faster but less canonical suexrat9.exe
c) sudoku-generating: suexg


In addition, GSF sudoku.exe software how to use?

Thank you very much.

They are dos based programs

gsf's sudoku-64 still works in a black dos windows10 box

navigate to the directory where sudoku-64 is

eg C:/sudoku

and also in that directory have a text file with the puzzle [each puzzle would have to be in the form of 81 character text string ]
[boxer text editor is good] [http://www.boxersoftware.com/pgdown.htm]

for example to rate a puzzle or batch of puzzles you would type

sudoku-64 -q1 file.txt > rating01.txt

typing sudoku-64 does give you instructions but they are not intuitive

dukuso's programs need a virtual dosbox to work - unless you use windows 7 !

https://www.dosbox.com/download.php?main=1

suexrat9 file.txt 1000 > rating.txt
suexratt file.txt 1000 2 > rating.txt

typing suexrat9 or suexratt gives you instructions too

If you want help with the other programs specifically i can probably help

Yes, most of these are for 32-bits Windows 7. They have 15 years so no wonder they are so outdated. Sorry if this is asking too much, but is there any chance of getting a 64-bits updated version? (or maybe a DLL version so it could be called using Win32API, maybe something like in this topic).

This looks like an excellent compilation of useful tools, but using a virtual box reduces their speed, and makes everything quite tedious. Also, because of that, I tried to call the suexk.exe from my solver but it simply can't execute it :(

from the website (link posted in post#1):
Code: Select all
my programs usually have their C-source-code attached to the executable.
If your editor can't handle this, you can uncover the attached
source code from my programs with this program: unattach
source-code of this program: unattach.c

The C source can be extracted from the programs, and re-compiled using your favorite compiler.
