svec ← {shape←⍬⍴(⍴⍵)*÷2} ##.sudoku prob  ⍝ Solution vector for Sudoku problem ⍵.

The  Sudoku  puzzle  consists  of a 3×3 grid of 3×3 boxes, each cell of which is
either  empty  or contains a number in the range 1 to 9. A typical problem might
look like this:

    ┌─────┬─────┬─────┐
    │· · 1│6 9 ·│5 · ·│
    │4 · ·│2 7 ·│· · 1│
    │· 7 ·│· · ·│· 9 ·│
    ├─────┼─────┼─────┤
    │· · ·│· · ·│· 3 ·│
    │· · ·│4 3 ·│· · 7│
    │· · ·│7 8 ·│6 · ·│
    ├─────┼─────┼─────┤
    │· · 6│· · ·│8 · ·│
    │· 2 ·│1 4 ·│· 6 ·│
    │· 1 ·│3 5 ·│· 4 ·│
    └─────┴─────┴─────┘

The challenge is to supply the missing numbers in such a way that:

    each 3×3 box and
    each 9-item row and
    each 9-item column

contains each of the 9 numbers with no repeats.

A solution to the above problem might be:

    ┌─────┬─────┬─────┐
    │3 8 1│6 9 4│5 7 2│
    │4 6 9│2 7 5│3 8 1│
    │2 7 5│8 1 3│4 9 6│
    ├─────┼─────┼─────┤
    │7 9 4│5 6 2│1 3 8│
    │6 5 8│4 3 1│9 2 7│
    │1 3 2│7 8 9│6 5 4│
    ├─────┼─────┼─────┤
    │5 4 6│9 2 7│8 1 3│
    │9 2 3│1 4 8│7 6 5│
    │8 1 7│3 5 6│2 4 9│
    └─────┴─────┴─────┘

The  puzzle  may  be generalised to accept problems of shape other than 3×3×3×3,
see examples below.

Argument  matrix [prob] contains numbers 1-9 in occupied cells and 0s otherwise.
Optional  left argument [shape] specifies the box shape for non-square problems.
The result is a vector of all solution matrices.

Technical notes:

This solution was supplied by Veli-Matti Jantunen, who says:

⍺ may be used to denote the sudoku rectangle, the default is 2/(↑⍴⍵)*0.5 (eg. if
"mat" is a 6x6 matrix and the sub area is 2 3, the call must be 2 3 sudoku mat).

The result is a vector of all the solutions found, or ⍬ (no solutions) or ''
(error - should not happen, but if there are zillions of results)

The algorithm is simple:
   handle the matrix as a vector
   the rows, columns and sudoku areas are denoted by index vectors
   do the basic checking for the puzzle (i.e. polish) and with the main function
    check one alternative from the list at time:
     filter all the possible elements for all the cells
      if at least one cell is empty = no solution -> take the next from the list
      if one cell contains more than one number -> select the cell from the
         tightest group and add every combination (from this cell) to the list
      if all cells contain one number = solution -> take the next from the list.

Veli-Matti  also  provides this new-from-old problem shuffler:

    Shuffle←{
    ⍝| Shuffle the original sudoku table to another one ;)
    ⍝| ⍺: sudoku box (use for e.g. 6x6 tables, like 2 3 Shuffle table).

        ⍺←(⍴⍵)*0.5 ⋄ (⎕IO ⎕ML ⎕RL)←1 3(⎕TS+.*2)
        (¯1+?3⍴2){(⌽⍣(↑⍺))(⍉⍣(↑1⌽⍺))(⊖⍣(↑⌽⍺))⍵}⍵{(0,(↑⍴⍺)?↑⍴⍺)[⍵⌷⍺+1]}(↑⍴⍵){∊{⍵[(⍴⍵)?⍴⍵]}{⍵[(⍴⍵)?⍴⍵]}¨⍵⊂⍳⍺}¨⍺/¨⍳¨⌽⍺
    }

Finally, here is Arthur Whitney's amazing solution in K 5:

    x(,/{@[x;y;]'(!10)^x*|/p[;y]=p,:,3/:-3!p:!9 9}')/&~*x

Translated by Phil Last into a D-function:

    sudoku←{⎕io←0       ⍝ Whitney/Last
        p←{(↑⍵)∘{(⍺∨.=⍵)/⍳n×n}¨,⍵},(n*÷2){⍵,⍺⊥⌊⍵÷⍺}¨⍳n n←⍴⍵
        m←{(⊂⍵)⌈(⊂⍺=⍳⍴⍵)×(1+⍳n)~⍵[⍺⊃p]}
        (⍴⍵)∘⍴¨⊃{⊃,/⍺ m¨⍵}/{((⍵=0)/⍳⍴⍵),⊂⊂⍵},⍵
    }

Morten Kromberg's recasting defines some of K's  constructs explicitly and so is
closer to the original.  Note that, like the K version, it takes and returns 81-
vectors, rather than matrices.

    sudoku←{
    ⍝ Define one k fn and one op missing from APL
         wh←{(⍵≠0)/⍳⍴⍵}         ⍝ k '&' function
         mg←{a←⍺ ⋄ a[⍺⍺]←⍵ ⋄ a} ⍝ merge operator: r←old (indexes mg) new

         rcq←(↑,⍳9 9),3/,3⌿3 3⍴⍳9   ⍝ Row, Column, Quadrant
         p←{wh rcq∨.=⍵}¨↓rcq        ⍝ Cells in same row, col or quadrant
         nzd←1+⍳9                   ⍝ Non-zero digits for a little more speed
         ⊃{⊃,/⍺{⍵∘(⍺ mg)¨nzd~⍵[⍺⊃p]}¨⍵}/(wh ⍵=0),⊂⊂⍵ ⍝ kapow!
    }

non-square puzzles:

        at   ← {⍵+⍺×(⍳⍴⍵)∊⊂⍺⍺}          ⍝ ⍺ at cell ⍺⍺ in ⍵
        emt  ← {(,⍵=0)/,⍳⍴⍵}            ⍝ row & column indices of empty cells
