There are several programs for working with Rubik's cubes, by three different people. Look inside the directories under /src to see specific info and licensing. In summary the three contributers are:

Michael Reid (GPL) http://www.math.ucf.edu/~reid/Rubik/optimal_solver.html

  • optimal - uses many pre-computed tables to find an optimal
    • solution to the 3x3x3 Rubik's cube

Dik T. Winter (MIT License)

  • cube - uses Kociemba's algorithm to iteratively find a short
    • solution to the 3x3x3 Rubik's cube
    size222 - solves a 2x2x2 Rubik's cube

Eric Dietz (GPL) http://www.wrongway.org/?rubiksource

  • cu2 - A fast, non-optimal 2x2x2 solver cubex - A fast, non-optimal 3x3x3 solver mcube - A fast, non-optimal 4x4x4 solver
