    To install the sudoku bundle:
o run: latex sudokubundle.ins (which will generate printsudoku.sty, 
       solvesudoku.sty and createsudoku.sty, and also somesudoku.tex)
o Move the .sty files to a location where LaTeX will find them (for more
   information on this see the FAQ).
o Run LaTeX on somesudoku.tex to typeset a collection of puzzles, plus
   their answers. Be aware that this will lead to a large number of small
   *.sud and *.ans files being created.

    To generate a second copy of the manual (which is already supplied as a PDF file):
o run: latex *.dtx
o (for an index run: makeindex -s gind.ist *.idx)
o run: latex *.dtx
o Print *.dvi for a hardcopy of the package manual

su­dokubun­dle – A set of su­doku-re­lated pack­ages

The bun­dle pro­vides three pack­ages:

  • printsu­doku, which pro­vides a com­mand \su­doku whose ar­gu­ment is the name of a file con­tain­ing a puz­zle spec­i­fi­ca­tion;
  • solvesu­doku, which at­tempts to find a so­lu­tion to the puz­zle in the file named in the ar­gu­ment; and
  • cre­ate­su­doku, which uses the ran­dom pack­age to gen­er­ate a puz­zle ac­cord­ing to a bunch of pa­ram­e­ters that the user sets via macros.

The bun­dle comes with a set of ready-pre­pared puz­zle files.
