Change The Perspective - 36 entries

This is a go game recodes file(.sgf file, refer to It base on such a coordinate system: in vertical direction, is from top(farthest end) to bottom, mark as a,b,c,...,s(19*19 board); in horizontal direction, is from left to right, uses the same notations. For Example, the coordinate notation 'cq', is the position at the bottom-left corner(vertical coordinate first). The record is from one player's perspective. We need to change to another's, but we don't want to change coordinate system, let it keep top to bottom and left to right. so we have to change the coordinates, a <-> s, b <-> r,c <-> q, etc. the Position 'cq', as transformation, it will be 'qd'.
