# Modeling Sudoku

A row is a sequence of 8-bit words, too large indeed for representing 1-9, but does not harm

check :: [SWord8] -> SBoolSource

Given a series of elements, make sure they are all different and they all are numbers between 1 and 9

type Puzzle = (Int, [SWord8] -> Board)Source

A puzzle is a pair: First is the number of missing elements, second is a function that given that many elements returns the final board.

# Solving Sudoku puzzles

dispSolution :: Puzzle -> (Bool, [Word8]) -> IO ()Source

Helper function to display results nicely, not really needed, but helps presentation

# Example boards

According to the web, this is the toughest sudoku puzzle ever.. It even has a name: Al Escargot: http://zonkedyak.blogspot.com/2006/11/worlds-hardest-sudoku-puzzle-al.html

The following is nefarious according to http://haskell.org/haskellwiki/Sudoku

allPuzzles :: IO ()Source

Solve them all, this takes a fraction of a second to run for each case
