digitalmars.D - Posting My Demo

Hey D'ers(?)

As a first excercise in D programming I wrote a straightforward
implementation of John Conway's Life simulation.   I developed it on
Linux using gdc.  I uses ncurses for output so its sort of old-school,
but has some nice features such as:

1. During startup it loads an initial screen from disk
2. Immediately after startup you get to edit the initial screen.
3. Its runs fairly fast even though it doesn't use octree optimizations.
4. You can pause the sim at any time, edit the current screen and 
unpause and single step.

In any case I learned a bit about interfacing to C libraries, 
dynamic multi-dimensional arrays etc and thought someone else might
benefit from the code.

It compiles and runs fine under the version of GDC in ubuntu.  If you
plan on building it yourself you will need the "bcd" package that 
converts C header files to D (had to go hunting for that).

In any case, I tried contacting admin dsource to get it posted there
but I haven't heard back.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Jim Burnes

The guy who runs dsource might just be busy. I'd wait a week at least before writing him off. Also if the source files aren't to big (250Kb*) I'd feel free to attach them to a post
 Any suggestions?

Okay BCS. Good idea. Expect it sometime soon after I do a little clean up. Jim
