DESCRIPTION

This is a solver for ABC Path ( http://www.brainbashers.com/abcpath.asp ).

FORMAT

Sample boards can be found in the distribution under t/layouts/ .

Here is the description of their format. The first line should be the magic string ABC Path Solver Layout Version 1: , and the next line should be a row of 7 letters, the first being a hint for the top-left-to-bottom-right perpendicular, the last being a hint for the top-right-to-bottom-left perpendicular and the rest of the letters being vertical hints.

After that, there are 5 rows of horizontal hints being a letter, 5 spaces and another letter. On one of the squares one can put a letter instead of a space, to indicate it must be there.

The last row is another row of vertical hints and perpendicular hints.

Here's an example:

    ABC Path Solver Layout Version 1:

    E     L
    U     F
    Y     P
    R     S
    TVMGCDH

One can also generate a skeleton for such a layout using the --gen-v1-template flag.
