Conway's Life simulation in Go
Implemeting Conway’s life is one of the first things I do when exploring a new programming language.
Conway’s Game of Life, also known as the Game of Life or simply Life, is a cellular automaton devised by the British mathematician John Horton Conway in 1970. It is the best-known example of a cellular automaton. Ever since its publication, Conway’s Game of Life has attracted much interest because of the surprising ways in which the patterns can evolve.
This time I wrote a version that can generate text-mode and animated GIF representations and load predefined starting configuration from LIF files:
