NAME ^

Games::Ratings - generic methods for rating calculation (e.g. chess ratings)

VERSION ^

This document describes Games::Ratings version 0.0.5

SYNOPSIS ^

 ## not very useful, but one could do
 
 use Games::Ratings;
 my $player = Games::Ratings->new();
 $player->set_rating(2240);
 $player->add_game( {
                      opponent_rating => 2114,
                      result          => 'win',   ## or 'draw' or 'loss'
                    }
                  );
 my $n                = $player->get_number_of_games_played();
 my $points_scored    = $player->get_points_scored();
 my $opponents_rating = $player->get_average_rating_of_opponents();
 $player->remove_all_games;

DESCRIPTION ^

Games::Ratings provides some generic methods for other, more specific modules (like Games::Ratings::Chess::FIDE or Games::Ratings::Chess::DWZ). It isn't very useful for itself.

INTERFACE ^

The following methods can be accessed from more specific modules -- like Games::Ratings::Chess::FIDE. Also specific methods for rating calculation are defined in those other modules.

new

  my $player = Games::Rating->new();

Create an object for storing rating and other data (like the FIDE development coefficient) for one player as well as informations about rated games of this player against some opponents.

set_rating

  $player->set_rating(2235);

Set rating of player.

get_rating

  my $own_rating = $player->get_rating();

Get rating of player.

set_coefficient

  $player->set_coefficient(15);

Set development coefficient of player. (A development coefficient is needed for calculation of some ratings: * FIDE Elo (FIDE Handbook, B.02.10.52) * German DWZ (Wertungsordnung des DSB, Punkt 4.9.2)).

get_coefficient

  my $own_coefficient = $player->get_coefficient();

Get development coefficient of player.

add_game

  $player->add_game( {
                       opponent_rating => 2184,
                       result          => 'draw',
                     }
                   );

Add rated game to object. We need opponents rating and the result of the game. Results are one of 'win', 'draw' or 'loss'. The data is passed as hash reference.

get_all_games

  my @list_of_games = $player->get_all_games();

Get list of previously added games. Each game is represented by a hash reference (cmp. $player->add_game() ).

remove_all_games

  $player->remove_all_games();

Remove all games added (via 'add_game') so far.

DESTROY

  $player->DESTROY();

Remove object $player.

get_number_of_games_played

  my $n = $player->get_number_of_games_player();

Get number of games played.

get_points_scored

  my $points_scored = $player->get_points_scored();

Get total points scored in played games. A win gives 1 point, a draw gives 0.5 points, a loss gives 0 points.

get_percentage_score

  my $percentage_score = $player->get_percentage_score();

Get percentage score in played games.

get_average_rating_of_opponents

  my $opponents_rating = $player->get_average_rating_of_opponents();

Get average rating of opponents for played games.
