I'd say that the queen can't get to any square that isn't at a 45 degree angle. Meaning any square that isn't on one of these angles 0, 45, 90, 135, 180, 225, or 270 from the current position. Assuming you want to bring some math into the calculation.
Edit: Not sure this is more efficient. I think I'd set up an 8x8 grid and flag where she can get. What is not flagged is where she can't get.
Jack of all trades, master of none, though often times better than master of one.
Hi Ron, I have no problem with the same file / rank / diagonal for the queen being on. Just wanted to eliminate having to process that scenario if I can quickly eliminate her not being able to get to the square I am currently interested in. Thanks for your reply.
Other than manually setting up 64 ‘truth tables’, is there a more efficient method of finding the squares on a chessboard that a queen can not get too, given the queen is placed at random on the chessboard?
It depends on what you want to do with the "truth tables".

What do you call "manually setting" ?

Hi ppolymorphe. "manually setting" is not the right verbiage I should have used. I would write an algorithm which would generate 64 tables, each table consisting of 8X8 squares. The queen is placed on square 1 for the first table… and so forth until the last table… she is placed on square 64.
Each table has Boolean true/false squares. All I have to do is looked at the correct table depending what square she is on and the square I am interested in would return the correct Boolean value.
Thanks for your reply.
It's not so bad, as suggested you can use bitboards (which will be useful when using them too, giving trivial intersection tests and so on), and because this is chess, this is all already known: chessprogramming - On an empty Board[^] gives the initialization routines for various attack masks, you can combine them here because you don't need the separate components.
Hi sorry for the lake of information so i'am talking about visual studio. in my case vs2013.
And when i am trying to add sql server connection on my server explorer (right click )
The "Select or enter data base name " drop down list from Add connection windows property is missing. The only why to the add relevant connection is to modify connection and add a the intial catalog by manual. what should i do in order to avoid set the initial catalog manual on Add Connection windows
The first thing you get asked when "Adding Connection..." is to specify what kind of data source to use. You're telling the system what type of database engine you're connecting to, be Access, ODBC, SQL Server, Oracle, ... and which provider to use to get at it. Once you pick that THEN you get to pick the database server (if applicable) and database name.
I want to add an application to windows firewall exception in Standard user without prompting for admin password.
I don't want to store my password of user who have admin privileges and later call it in standard user.
AFAIK, you can't.
And if you think about it, that's for good reasons.
If your app could change firewall settings without Admin privileges, then so could any other app - including a lot of nasty ones that would really like to open holes in your firewall as a side effect!
Be glad you can't - or half your system security would disappear overnight...
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...
Yes, I got the same answer everywhere. But I got this doubt because of Tally.ERP 9.
I am using Tally.ERP 9 which is installed in Local server ( Requires admin privilege to install). When I access that application remotely in standard user the Tally.ERP 9 gets added to firewall exception in Local PC. (There is no common users in Server PC and Local PC)
How Tally.ERP 9 added without admin privileges ?
