with 'sudoku' tag

numbers singly

the “generally available” (or production-ready) version of mysql 5.0 was officially released today, and kai voigt, one of the mysql trainers, has posted a sudoku solver written as an sql stored procedure. the solver was actually written by per-erik marten, the main implementor of mysql’s stored procedure support.

it’s probably not the best showcase of stored procedures, but it is a nifty little hack.
