I have cataracts, and I will be having cataract surgery in January and February to have them removed. This means I now have 7 appointments to see doctors in the next 3 months, including one on December 31st. I am not looking forward to all that.
I started programming another puzzle program over the weekend. This one creates Sudoku puzzles. I know there are a lot of Sudoku programs already out there, but this one is designed to save the puzzle so it can be incorporated into newsletters and other published information.
I have looked at the source code for several of the existing Sudoku programs, and have noticed that they 'cheat'. Instead of generating a fresh puzzle themselves, they have data that is actually already-generated puzzles. My program will create brand new puzzles.
