1 GtkLife is a fast, featureful, open-source Conway's Life program.
3 Conway's Life is a form of artificial life (specifically, a cellular automaton)-
4 one of the simplest there is. There are only a few rules:
6 1. The game is played on a rectangular grid, where each cell is either alive or
8 2. Each generation is computed from the state of the previous generation, using
9 rules 3 and 4:
10 3. A live cell with 2 or 3 live neighbors (adjacent cells, including diagonals)
11 lives on. Otherwise it dies.
12 4. A dead cell with exactly 3 live neighbors comes to life.
14 That's all there is to it. Yet fascinating behavior arises from these simple
