Solution Log.

I'd like it if you initiated some sort of 'Solution Log' like simes has. Maybe you could mail it out as a patch or something.

I like to know what I'm missing.

I agree with Karyobin that this would be a very useful addition to an already excellent program. I normally manage to sort out Pappocom puzzles but sometimes puzzles from other sources cause me considerable problems especially when trying to understand a new technique. The use of single step and a solution log can be very helpful in these circumstances.

In a month or so's time, my son is coming to give me a helping hand, so my workload should be reduced, giving me some time to get back to the programming computer. Since I will then be able to come up for air, I will uplift all of these excellent suggestions and implement many (or most) of them.

Solution Log

I think your idea of a solution log is exellent. I compose a solution log each time I complete a puzzle. I do this by numbering the columbs A-I and the rows 1-9. I then write down the row and columb number and the data that was entered into the square i.e. A3,2 would put a 2 in columb A row 3. If near the end of the puzzle an error is detected I can follow my steps back and see where I went wrong. Also if a future version of the program gave each puzzle a unique serial number then players could interact over the web giving tips on how to solve a puzzle or even post a complete solution. This would be very helpful for the most difficult of puzzles. Let's see what happens!!!!!!!!!
