KPuzzle is a very fast optimal solver of the 15 Puzzle Problem, written in C++.
Its efficiency relies on the data structure representation used in order to describe the space state. Bitwise operations are widely used in order to achieve better low-level machine instructions.
Moreover, an efficient search algorithm and heuristic (based on Pattern Databases) allow finding the optimal solution in few milliseconds.
