I haven’t got much time today, so I can only jot a note as a signpost in a search for something else.
For a while I have been wondering why I couldn’t find a version of Conway’s Game of Life for the console, outside of the demo version packed in teapot or a few semi-eponymous “life” packages intended for graphical worlds.
I did find zivot the other day, but … it’s a little less than I anticipated.
This is more of a frame-by-frame snapshot of each stage, and not so much a full animated version. It seems odd to me that I can’t find something ncurses-based that animates the sequences more gracefully. I must be overlooking it.
I guess I’ll just have to stick with worms. :D
