NEW FEATURES

in 0.09

Realized that I parsed out the wrong thing and parsed out something like:


   12. ...?

instead.

Stored this in plycount instead.

in 0.08

For puzzle_of_day(), parsed out ``$color to move and win'' and stored in the PlyCount header of PGN so that I could see where the puzzle began.

Too see an example of a log of auto-downloaded games, visit:

http://princepawn.perlmonk.org/chess/pgn/montreux.html

in 0.07

Added a sample cron file for daily automatic retrieval of puzzle of day.

Added Log::Agent logging to sample retrieval script

in 0.06

puzzle_of_day was added


TODO

Download other daily game parts of the site
