I wrote this java application because I was tired of being stumped by Sudoku! One enters a Sudoku puzzle into this Java Swing interface and then begins to solve the puzzle.
A tool tip identifies what possible values are for a cell when one hovers over that cell. Once there is only one possible entry for a cell, the program automatically fills in the value and propagates the change through the board.
Needless to say, it drastically reduces the time it takes to complete a puzzle and also kinda kills the fun! ;-)
