Haha! :lol: Actually, enxio is an error code that means "No such device or address". I chose it to give a connotation of "anonymous". At one time, it was error number 27 in the list of standard error codes, thus enxio27. I have other user names for various purposes, but I use enxio27 for tech-geek types of sites. On this site (and a few others), I use an avatar of Arwen (from "The Lord of the Rings") with the intent of giving a clue as to my gender, as well.

I'm not sure how to make a filter within the search. And perhaps I'm not going about the vicinity search the correct (or best) way. Should I have more than one seed puzzle in my seed file? I have been using only one seed puzzle per search (usually one of the highest-rated puzzles played to that point). To perform the vicinity search, I have been using:

Code: Select all
sudoku-64.exe -go{-4+4}p -euniq()*(clues==23)*(minimal==1) -f%%v <seed.txt >puzzles.txt


and then using serate to rate them:

Code: Select all
java -cp SudokuExplainer.jar diuf.sudoku.test.serate --format=%%r/%%p/%%d --input=puzzles.txt  --output=rating.txt


Then I import the puzzles and their ratings into a spreadsheet and sort them by ER, EP, and ED. At that point, I can use filters to narrow down the field for visual selection. Very clumsy and time consuming, of course, but I don't yet know how to do it more efficiently.

I'm not going to formally resign, but I'm pretty much giving up for this round. Clearly I need a better method of puzzle generation/selection. :|
