Your summary of SweeperBot's current strategies are correct, although by default cheating is only done as a last resort (if we're guessing, and would have stepped on a mine, guess again).

I agree that the current logic is very sub-optimal, most of it was hacked together during coffee breaks at OSDC a few years ago, when I was preparing for talks, and hasn't been touched since. A better AI and faster image-handling are the two areas I think have the greatest scope for improvement.

I would love contributions towards the AI, and would be very happy to accept submissions and suggestions. My current goal is to try and get the code cleaned up and properly documented with a decent test suite; the original code from Matt Sparks used a lot of package variables, and many of them are still present in the code I've released.

Patches are extremely welcome, and I'll see if I can find a suitable way to make my git repository accessible to assist that. However please don't let that hold you up; any patches against what's released on the CPAN will apply just fine (I'll make sure of it).

Best regards,

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
