https://oj.leetcode.com/problems/n-queens/ The n-queens puzzle is the problem of placing n queens on an n×n chessboard such that no two queens attack each other. Given an integer n, return all distinct solutions to the n-queens puzzle.
Each solution contains a distinct board configuration of the n-queens' placement,
where 'Q' and '.' both indicate a queen and an empty space respectively. For example,
There exist two distinct solutions to the 4-queens puzzle:
[".Q..", // Solution 1
"..Q."], ["..Q.", // Solution 2
===Comments by Dabay===
This set of questions is relatively simple , Start with a queen , Then find the next possible location and put the second one ... The trick is “ Find the next possible location ” On ,
- Next position , In fact, in the next line
- When checking if it can be placed , Just check if the column is occupied , And whether diagonal lines are occupied on the left and right respectively .( Because there is no queen down there )
