I have been trying to write a program in Pascal (free pascal compiler, Lazarus IDE) that solves an uncompleted entered sudoku. I am moderately new to programming/pascal/lazarus, and so I have no idea how to use the debugging features. I have read through the code several times but I can't see what the problem is. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

```
program sudoku;
var
input : array[1..9, 1..9] of integer;
cell : array[1..9, 1..9, 1..9] of integer;
output : array[1..9, 1..9] of integer;
cposs : array[1..9, 1..9, 1..9] of integer;
cloop, cloop2, rloop, rloop2, bloop, bloop2, loop, loop2, loop3, c, d : integer;
cloop3, rloop3, bloop3 : integer;
cloop4, rloop4, bloop4 : integer;
cloop5, rloop5, bloop5 : integer;
solved : boolean;
{$R *.res}
begin
{sets all items of input array to 0}
for loop := 1 to 9 do
begin
for loop2 := 1 to 9 do
input[loop2,loop] := 0;
end;
{sets all items of cell array to 10}
for loop := 1 to 9 do
begin
for loop2 := 1 to 9 do
begin
for loop3 := 1 to 9 do
begin
cell[loop3,loop2,loop] := 10;
end;
end;
end;

writeln;

writeln('Please enter the numbers of your sudoku from left to right, one row at a time from top to bottom, WITH A SPACE BETWEEN EACH CHARACTER, pressing enter after each row. If the cell is empty, please write a 0.');
