  /** Implementation of a backtracking algorithm to generate Sudoku puzzles
   *
   * To generate Sudoku puzzles two nested backtracking algorithms are used.
   * First a random Sudoku solution is searched. Then the algorithm tries to
   * remove some numbers so that only the requested number of givens remains.
   * Each puzzle is checked with the nested solver algorithm if there is only
   * one solution.
   *
   * Example:
   *
   * \code
   * Puzzle puzzle;
   * Generator generator(puzzle, 36);
   * generator.find_next_solution();
   * bool found = generator.solution_is_valid();
   * \endcode
