( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

No code, but you may be interested in http://www.menneske.no/kakuro/eng/ which has puzzles that I believe are computer-generated and then hand-edited. It has the interesting variation of offering puzzles in different bases (from 4 to 20), which I haven't seen elsewhere.

For several years I've been a member of Puzzle Japan (sadly due to close down shortly) which has this as one of the types of puzzles (called 'Kakro' there). I have not tried your code, but I have found even the "Super Hard" puzzles generated by menneske to be rather easy and unsatisfying compared to those at PJ - the benefits of (semi-)professional human compilers, and editing. I guess that's unavoidable unless you can at least get a metric for satisfyingness, and I don't know how you do that.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
