Jigoku Sudoku

Sudoku is a puzzle game where it is your goal to fill a 9×9 grid with digits such that each row, column and 3×3 sub-grid
contains all of the digits from 1 to 9 (no repeats allowed).
Jigoku is Sudoku, but also includes 'smaller than' and 'bigger than' edges that indicate that a square is smaller, respectively
larger than another square.

Game play
To solve a Sudoku puzzle you are required to fill all the squares with a number such that each row has all the numbers
from 1 through 9 (no repeats allowed). The same also holds for each column. And finally, there are 9 boxes of 3x3
squares that also have to have all the numbers from 1 through 9.
If you play the Jigoku variant, then the edge indicators must also be obeyed.

At the start of the level some squares are already filled for you with numbers. These pre-determined numbers are
underlined. You cannot change these numbers while playing the game; they are guaranteed to be correct.

Each undetermined square has the numbers 1 through 9 in them.

Left mouse button
If you know which number should be in a square, you can press the left mouse button on a number to immediately set it as
the determined number. Pressing the left mouse button again undoes this.

Right mouse button
When you figure out that a number isn't possible in a square, you can press the right mouse button on it to remove it
from the possibilities. Pressing the right mouse button on the spot where the number used to be makes it reappear (and is
therefore marked possible again). If there is only one number left then the game automatically fills it into the square for you.

When all the squares are filled and they all obey the requirements, the level is solved. You will see a messagebox
informing you of your success.

New level icon New level
You can start a level by choosing it from the combo box at the top right of the window, or by choosing the new icon
to generate a new random level (only Sudoku for now).
You'll be able to specify how many squares you want be revealed at the start of the game.

Solve level icon Auto-solve level
When you want to have the game try to solve the level for you simply click the auto-solve icon.
This can not only be a new (restarted/cleared) level, but also while playing a level at any time.
There are 3 possible outcomes:

1. There is a single unique solution. The solution will be shown.

2. There are multiple solutions. You will be presented with a messagebox showing you how many solutions there are.
You can step through all the solutions by using the 'prev' and 'next' buttons.

3. There are no solutions.
This can happen either because the level has been incorrectly constructed, or you have made a mistake while
solving the level. Restarting the level can help in that case.
