Cellular automata simulator

2d-rewriter is a cellular automata simulator. Key features

  • Declarative input language for rules and initial patterns definition.
  • Ability to emulate Conway’s “Life Game” via proper rules specification.
  • Ability to demonstrate self replicating loops.
  • Patterns are tried in 4 orientations.
  • Cell directions are defined against the pattern orientation.
  • Total number of rules can be substantially decreased by using sets and defining patterns using variables.
  • Required run time environment is a minimal X window system installation on a POSIX-compatible system *BSD/Linux/Mac OS X/Cygwin/….
