Thanks to those of you who have communicated problems with my solver (www.philsfolly.net.au) which I have endeavored to correct. In the process I have upgraded it to provide drop down menus for greater choice of technique, as well as improving the help files.

Hi Phil, Just imported today's puzzle into your solver 3....48......2.....7.5.....5......84..2...5.........2389.6...1..6..483..4..9.3...

The first move is a naked quad, which is OK. The next move mentions a hidden pair in 34 r2c8 and r3c8, but for some reason this isn't highlighted or zapped.

The candidates in these cells are only removed via a later naked quad in Column 8. Hope this helps with a bug fix.

Leren, Thank you again. A silly little coding error which is now fixed.

The result of announcing improvements is that I usually get suggestions for further changes, some of which I have now added. If you use Chrome, remember to clear the cache so that you see the new code.
