Crate chess_move_gen [] [src]

chess_move_gen

Provides structs and methods for generating chess moves efficiently

Example usage:

use chess_move_gen::*;
let mut list = MoveVec::new();
let position = &Position::from_fen("rnbqkbnr/pppppppp/8/8/8/8/PPPPPPPP/RNBQKBNR w QqKk - 0 1").unwrap();
legal_moves::<MoveVec>(position, &mut list);
assert_eq!(list.len(), 20);

Structs

Board
Castle

Represents a castleove

CastlingRights

Represents the right to castle in a particular director for a particular side

Kind

Represents a kind of piece (eg knight)

Move

Represents a move on the chess position. Uses a compact 16 bit representation

MoveCounter

MoveCounter implements MoveList and keeps a count of different types of moves added to it. It can count at most 256 moves since it uses u8 internally

MoveVec

MoveCounter implements MoveList and collects moves in a vector. Use iter to access the moves once they have been added.

Piece

Represents a piece for a particular side (eg black knight)

PiecesIter
Position

Position encodes all positional information and non-positional game state

Side

Represents a side to move
