[REBOL] Re: [SCRIPT]Game of Life in /View

From: arolls:bigpond:au at: 4-May-2001 22:20

It gives me an idea. It should be possible to use built-in image processing effects on a small image to do the life calculations for you (at the same time getting more interesting colours), then stretching the little image to fit into your window and slapping a grid on it. The tricky part is to balance the use of image processing effects in such a way as to produce a feedback, "life-like". Such a system will be much faster too, I expect. See anim-zoom3.r on my reb-site for a demonstration of effects used in a feedback loop. I'll probably give it a go myself. Actually, you could still use a stretched image to store your cell state, with different colours representing different states. Anton.
