NAME

qqwing - A tool for generating and solving Sudoku puzzles

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

qqwing --generate [OPTIONS...]

DESCRIPTION

qqwing is a Sudoku puzzle generator and solver. It offers the following features:
o Fast. It can solve 1000 puzzles in 1 second and generate 1000 puzzles in 25 seconds.
o Uses logic. Uses as many solve techniques as possible when solving puzzles rather than guessing.
o Rates puzzles. Most generators don’t give an indication of the difficulty of a Sudoku puzzle. QQwing does.

o Customizable output style, including a CSV style that is easy to import into a database.
