Pentomino Puzzle Solver

Logo for Pentomino Puzzle Solver
A pentomio consists of 5 connected squares. There are 12 possible pentominos. The puzzle is to place them on an 8-by-8 board, with 4 designated squares left blank. This applet solves the puzzle (using a recursive backtracking algorithm that runs in its own thread).
