Format question

Postby Pupp » Sat Jan 08, 2022 5:43 pm

Anybody know which format this string is?

0000847b216e 020900000048000031000063020009407003003080200400105600030570000250000180000006050 2.3

I'm trying to figure out if I can import it into my phone's Sudoku app (Sudoku 10'000), but I need the proper file extension in order to check.

It's from a .txt file that Sudoku Explainer can open. I'm trying to see if it's also a particular file extension also.

If I load one of the puzzle dumps, the only puzzle I can do is the very first. Sudoku Explainer doesn't seem to have any way to paging to different puzzles. Kinda make a puzzle dump useless.

I think the first part of the string is some kind of title and I'm not sure what .3, is but if you strip off those bits you get

020900000048000031000063020009407003003080200400105600030570000250000180000006050

which is the code for a not-particularly hard 29-clue puzzle that may keep your interest for a while after the initial singles.

Code: Select all
+---+---+---+
|.2.|9..|...|
|.48|...|.31|
|...|.63|.2.|
+---+---+---+
|..9|4.7|..3|
|..3|.8.|2..|
|4..|1.5|6..|
+---+---+---+
|.3.|57.|...|
|25.|...|18.|
|...|..6|.5.|
+---+---+---+


10,000 PRO can import from a number of other solvers, but I've never done it.

Scroll down the web page where you obtained the puzzle, the format is explained there.

I used Windows Powershell to harvest the 81 digits in the middle, and that converted it into an .sdm file.

I really didn't trust the link to a sudoku program I never heard of.
