Subject: optimal solver for quarter turns
i have my optimal cube solver working for quarter turns. it seems to
be as effective as the face turn version. some minimal maneuvers
it has found are
cube in a cube in a cube
U' L' U' F' R2 B' R F U B2 U B' L U' F U R F' (20q)
six X's, order 6
F U' L2 F' L' D R U' D L' B U2 F' L' D' F D R (20q)
ron's cube within the cube
F D' F' R D F' R' D R D L' F L D R' F D' (17q)
and it has also confirmed minimality of known maneuvers for several
other patterns.
