  1. Hi all,

    I wonder if somebody had a Sudoko solver written in Python ?

    I have one myself (~400 records). it uses the simplest rules, and then trial
    and error, but it works so far.

    Dude, there's like a million of them. Try "Sudoko solver Python" in

    I wrote one myself based on Knuth's Dancing Links algorithm and using
    Tkinter for the gui. I'll send it to you or post it here if you really
    want. But try google first. ;-) there are certainly bound to be
    better ones out there.

    Check out - it is a Sudoku game with the
    ability to solve & create new puzzles.

  6. yes thanks Sybren, I just found yours.

  7. it looks like both zip files are corrupted (for windows platform)?
    I managed to install from source so not a big problem, but it would be nice
    to have the puzzle pack

    Can you tell me more? So far I can only tell you that they work just
    fine for me, and 'unzip -t puzzlepack*.zip' tells me the ZIP is fine.
    This is on Linux.

  9. Yes, this is on windows using winzip
    It says the zip file is not a valid zipfile

    Could you send your zip directly to me by mail ? bucodi (at) yahoo (dot) fr

  10. make sure you save it to disk before opening it.

    Works fine for me on Windows. Try deleting the file you downloaded,
    clearing your browser cache, and trying again.

    On the other hand, when you run it it immediately pops up a huge
    dialog saying that there is a new version available, "404 File Not
    Found", and a huge pile of HTML source. The game itself seems to work

    Thanks for letting me know. I forgot to port the URL that reports the
    latest version when I moved my website from CherryPy to Django.
