Problem Statement
Suggest Edit

You have been given a 9x9 2d integer matrix 'MAT' representing a Sudoku puzzle. The empty cells of the Sudoku are filled with zeros and the rest of the cells are filled with integers from 1 to 9. Your task is to fill all the empty cells such that the final matrix represents a Sudoku solution.

Note:
A Sudoku solution must satisfy all the following conditions-
1. Each of the digits 1-9 must occur exactly once in each row.
2. Each of the digits 1-9 must occur exactly once in each column.
3. Each of the digits 1-9 must occur exactly once in each of the 9, 3x3 sub-grids of the grid.

You can also assume that there will be only one sudoku solution for the given matrix.
Input Format:
The input consists of 9 lines. Each line contains 9 single space-separated integers representing a row of the matrix. An empty cell is represented by 0.
Constraints :
Size of MAT is 9x9
0 <= MAT[i][j] <= 9

where an empty cell is given by 0 in the matrix.
Output Format :
The output is consists of 9 lines. Each line contains 9 single space-separated integers where the empty cells from the input matrix are replaced by some integers.

You do not need to print anything explicitly, it has already been taken care of.
