    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.
