Is there a Slither Link app anywhere, or even a web page, that let's you manually enter test patterns to experiment with?  The two apps I know about (tilps's Loop-de-Loop and Mike Pinna's Loopy) only generate puzzles or load a not-human-friendly string format.

Alternatively, foilman, could you make some way for the forum puzzle template to redisplay patterns in the graphic template AFTER they've been entered in a post?

For a long time now I've been meaning to add an editor to my program, but I am to ambitious, I want the ability to create arbitrary shaped meshes as well. Maybe after I come back from my honeymoon.

This applet takes a simple grid of numbers as an input file, though it takes a little effort to get it working on your own files:

First make a local copy of these files:

prob001-eng.html finish-eng.html 001.data
ControlButton.class NumberLine.class Vertex.class Area.class Edge.class

Check that it works by viewing the prob001 file. If it does, just edit the 001.data file to reflect the puzzle of your choice. If you're making a much larger puzzle, you might want to modify the width and height values in prob001-eng.html

Hope this helps.

You can sort of do this now by copying the puzzle string from a message (hit 'quote' on a message to see the puzzle strings in it - copy the text between the puzzle tags) and then on the puzzle template push the 'import: puzzle' button and paste the text in. You can then play around with the puzzle - you don't have to submit the new post.
