In Wikipedia 3D-Chess, it is written:
A rook moves through the six faces of a cube in any rank, file, or column
I understand what is a column for a cube. I also deduce that a rank is somewhat a row. And I also deduce that a file is a diagonal, but what are such words? A file and a rank for a face of a cube. I didn't see any of this vocabulary in square or cube. Are such deductions correct? Is this vocabulary often used in English to describe some cube's parts, if not more used than diagonal and row?
