Hot diggity! I didn't read the puzzle definition closely enough!

Well, I could easily fix that by updating valid(). Give me a few minutes and I'll update this node with a solution that solves the puzzle accurately.

Update: hum... I'm getting protection faults :( I think I can't use regexps in valid() when it's called from within a regexp.

Update: Fine, I won't use regexp in valid(). What follows is my updated solution. The only difference the var $regsz and valid() has an additional check.

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; my @grid = ( [qw( _ _ _ | 1 _ _ | 7 4 _ )], [qw( _ 5 _ | _ 9 _ | _ 3 2 )], [qw( _ _ 6 | 7 _ _ | 9 _ _ )], # ------+-------+------- [qw( 4 _ _ | 8 _ _ | _ _ _ )], [qw( _ 2 _ | _ _ _ | _ 1 _ )], [qw( _ _ _ | _ _ 9 | _ _ 5 )], # ------+-------+------- [qw( _ _ 4 | _ _ 7 | 3 _ _ )], [qw( 7 3 _ | _ 2 _ | _ 6 _ )], [qw( _ 6 5 | _ _ 4 | _ _ _ )], ); @$_ = grep { /[^|]/ } @$_ foreach @grid; my $size = @grid; my $regsz = $size ** 0.5; our $grid_h = ''; our $grid_v = ''; foreach my $y (0 .. $#grid) { foreach my $x (0 .. $#grid) { $grid_h .= $grid[$y][$x]; $grid_v .= $grid[$x][$y]; } } our $match_grid; sub print_grid { local $_ = $_[0]; local $\ = "\n"; print substr($_, 0, $size, '') while length; } sub valid { my ($y, $x, $n) = @_; my $spot = substr($grid_h, $y*$size+$x, 1); return 1 if $spot eq $n; return if $spot ne '_'; return if index(substr($grid_h, $y*$size, $size), $n) >= 0; return if index(substr($grid_v, $x*$size, $size), $n) >= 0; my $ry = int($y / $regsz) * $regsz; my $rx = int($x / $regsz) * $regsz; foreach my $ry_ ($ry .. $ry+$regsz-1) { return if index(substr($grid_h, $ry_*$size+$rx, $regsz), $n) >= +0; } return 1; } my $re = ''; my $fail = 'x'; foreach my $y (0 .. $#grid) { foreach my $x (0 .. $#grid) { my @attempts; foreach my $n (1 .. @grid) { # The following statment simplifies the regexp, # but makes it specific to the puzzle. # Comment it out to make the regexp reusable. next unless valid($y, $x, "$n"); push(@attempts, "(?(?{ !valid($y, $x, '$n') })$fail)" . "(?{ " . "local \$grid_h = \$grid_h; " . "substr(\$grid_h, @{[ $y*$size+$x ]}, 1, '$n'); " . "local \$grid_v = \$grid_v; " . "substr(\$grid_v, @{[ $x*$size+$y ]}, 1, '$n'); " . "})" ); } $re .= "(?:\n " . join(" |\n ", @attempts) . "\n)\n"; } } $re .= "(?{ \$match_grid = \$grid_h })\n"; { use re 'eval'; $re = qr/$re/x; } # print($re); "" =~ $re or die("No solution.\n"); print("Original\n"); print("========\n"); print_grid($grid_h); print("\n"); print("Solution\n"); print("========\n"); print_grid($match_grid);

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).
