NAME ^

Chess::FIDE::Player - Parse player data from FIDE Rating List.

SYNOPSIS ^

  use Chess::FIDE::Player qw(@FIDE_field);
  my $player = Chess::FIDE::Player->new(%param);
  print $player->id() . "\n";
  $player->value('field');

DESCRIPTION ^

Chess::FIDE::Player - Parse player data from FIDE Rating List. FIDE is the International Chess Federation that every quarter of the year releases a list of its rated members. The list contains about fifty thousand entries. This module provides means of translation of every entry into a perl object containing all the fields.

Constructor

$player = Chess::FIDE::Player->new(%param);

The constructor creates a hash reference, blesses it and fills it with parameters passed in %param. The parameters should be fields corresponding to @FIDE_field (see section 'EXPORT'). If a field is not defined, a default value contained in %init is used, and if it is the 'id' field, the next default id is increased by one.

value

$player->value('field'); $player->value('field',$value);

First one retrieves a field in the $player object. If the field is not valid (i.e. not contained in @FIDE_field, an undef is returned. Second one sets the field to $value, and again in case of an invalid field undef is returned. Otherwise the new value of the field is returned.

EXPORT

@FIDE_field
 - array of valid fields for the Player object.
