NAME ^

Chess::PGN::Parse::FileHandle - Parse PGN from a FileHandle

VERSION ^

Version 0.02

SYNOPSIS ^

    use Chess::PGN::Parse::FileHandle;

    # read from a gzip'ed file with gunzipping first
    open my $pgn_gz, "<:gzip", "my_pgns.pgn.gz" or die $!;

    my $pgn = Chess::PGN::Parse::FileHandle->new($pgn_gz);
    while ($pgn->read_game()) {
        # Process the file like you would with Chess::PGN::Parse
        ...
    }

DESCRIPTION ^

After getting tired of having to repeatedly gzip and gunzip PGN files to process through Chess::PGN::Parse, I decided there had to be an easier way. Well, this is it. This module is simple subclass of Chess::PGN::Parse that allows FILECHANDLEs as a parameter.

FUNCTIONS ^

new FILEHANDLE

Returns a new Chess::PGN::Parse::FileHandle object, ready to read from FILEHANDLE.

The remaining methods of this class are inherited directly from Chess::PGN::Parse.

NOTES ^

This is a naughty module that peeks at the internals of another module. It could easily break if changes are made to Chess::PGN::Parse.
