Name:
Basilisk Go Server

Requirements:
The list of prerequisites is in Makefile.pl. To resolve them, either 
use perl's MakeMaker system (perl Makefile.PL) or by using the 'cpan'
interface to the CPAN.

Running:
1. Run script/basilisk_spawn_db.pl to generate an initial sqlite database.
2. Afterwards, run script/basilisk_server.pl to test the application.
3. Add a waiting game using the 'waiting room' interface. Click on the
   waiting game and join it.

Description:
A correspondence Go server for variant rulesets. A number of rule 
variations are supported:
* Non-square boards: anywhere from 5 to 25 intersecctions in any dimension.
* Edge wrapping: What amounts to cylindrical, toroidal, moebius, & klein
   bottle topologies. Real projective plane may be forthcoming.
* Go with more than 2 players or sides. Pretty much any cyclic pattern 
   of moves may be described.  This feature is unpolished, regarding
   initiation and scoring.
* Random elements: Inaccurate placement and inconsistent turns.

The source is arranged with a model-view-controller paradigm. The model
loads a DBIx::Class schema, which is in lib/basilisk/Schema. The view uses
Template::Toolkit and uses templates in the template directory.  
The controller comprises actions, which are grouped into relevant files
in lib/basilisk/Controller. Actions may be chained based on the url path.
Static files are in the 'root' directory.
