Puzzle Bank

Postby TwinsFan1987 » Tue Feb 21, 2006 10:20 pm

Hi. I'm a college student who designed a sodoku solver for a homework assignment.
Anyways, does anyone know of a public Sodoku puzzle bank that can be easily & freely accesed? A text file format would be best.

Gordon Royal has eight more databases, each in a single pattern here.

The[url=http://magictour.free.fr/sudoku.htm] http://magictour.free.fr/sudoku.htm[/url] website has several databases and the program suexg.exe with which you can create your own large database in minutes.

There are several posts on the Sudoku Programmer's site that have databases of puzzles, for example here and here.

Michael Kennett's public domain charactor based generator -- a public domain ap that will allow creation of your own large database in minutes.

Just a reminder: make sure you learn the correct spelling of sudoku before you hand in your assignment... it'd be a shame to lose marks on that silly mistake... Another form is "Su Doku" which is adopted by The Times. Some talk about the origin of the name can be found in this post.

As far as I could see: that site contains only 17-clue puzzles. Most of them don't require very advanced solving technics.
