NAME

Algorithm::MasterMind::Partition - Base class for exhaustive partion-based methods

SYNOPSIS

    use base 'Algorithm::MasterMind::Partition';

  

DESCRIPTION

This is a base class for endgames based on partitions.

INTERFACE

initialize()

Called from new, initializes data structures.

issue_first ()

Issues it in the Knuth way, AABC. This should probably be computed from scratch (to be coherent with the algorithm), but it's already published, so what the hell.

issue_next()

Issues the next combination, delegates the string-selection part to compute_next_string

compute_next_string()

Implements the logic that selects the next string to play, based on partition score
