Chess::Piece::Rook - an object representation of a rook in a game of chess
$rook = Chess::Piece::Rook->new("a1", "white", "White Queen's rook"); $true = $rook->can_reach("h1"); $true = $rook->can_reach("a8"); $false = $rook->can_reach("d4");
The Chess module provides a framework for writing chess programs with Perl. This class forms part of that framework, representing a rook in a Chess::Game.
Constructs a new Chess::Piece::Rook. Requires two scalar parameters containing the initial square and color of the piece. Optionally takes a third parameter containing a description of the piece.
There are no class methods for this class.
Overrides base class version. Returns a list of squares that this pawn can reach from its current position. See "reachable_squares()" in Chess::Piece for more details on this method.
