Customization Variables for
Default: . (dot)
Character used to mark open (without obstacle) positions in maze.
Default: # (specify as %23)
Character used to mark blocked (those with an obstacle) positions in maze.
Character used to mark starting position in maze.
Character used to mark goal (end) position in maze.
Character used to mark positions along a path being considered
as a solution in maze.
Character used to mark positions that were considered but rejected as
being part of a solution in maze.
The value of this character can affect how the maze algorithm runs.
I.e., if you set it to the same character as the open
character, it won't mark locations that it has visited before, and
thus, may visit those locations more than once (although the algorithm
will still eventually finish).
A string representing the order in which to traverse the maze (N=North,
E=East, S=South, W=West). Exactly 4 directions must be specified. They
may be upper- or lowercase.
Note: Part of the web page allows users to enter a maze on which
to run the algorithm. For entered mazes, whitespace at the end of
lines is normally ignored, however, if any of the maze characters (see
above) are set to whitespace (e.g., the space [%20]), then trailing
whitespace will no longer be ignored.
