NAME

Games::SGF::Go - A Go Specific SGF Parser

VERSION

Version 0.993

SYNOPSIS

  use Games::SGF::Go;

  my $sgf = new Games::SGF::Go;

  $sgf->readFile('somegame.sgf');

  # fetch Properties
  my $komi = $sgf->property('KM');
  my $handicap = $sgf->property('HA');

  # move to next node
  $sgf->next;

  # get a move
  my $move = $sgf->property('B');
  
  # add it to a board
  
  $board[ $move->[0] ][ $move->[1] ] = 'B';

DISCRIPTION

Games::SGF::Go Extends Games::SGF for the game specifics of Go. These include adding the tags 'TB', 'TW', 'HA', and 'KM'. It will also parse and check the stone, move, and point types.

The stone, move and point types will be returned as an array ref containing the position on the board.

You can set application specific tags using "setTag" in Games::SGF. All the callbacks to Games::SGF have been set and thus can't be reset.

All other methods from "METHODS" in Games::SGF can be used as you normally would.

METHODS

new

  my $sgf = new Games::SGF::Go;

This will create the Games::SGF::Go object.

point

stone

move

  $struct = $self->move(@cord);
  @cord = $self->move($struct);

If a point, stone, or move is passed in, it will be broken into it's parts and returned. If the parts are passed in it will construct the internal structure which the parser uses.

These override "point" in Games::SGF, "stone" in Games::SGF, and "move" in Games::SGF.

isPass

   $sgf->isPass($move);

The method will return true if the move was a pass.

This is represented in the SGF as an empty string:

  ;B[];W[]

pass

   $move = $sgf->pass;

This will return a $move which is a pass.
