cgol (Curses Game of Life)

cgol is an implementation of Conway's Game of Life written in C and using the curses interface. Upon start, it generates a finite grid with a random seed pattern. It then iterates through generations indefinitely (unless the '-n' option is supplied).

It was written simply for its hack value. Game of Life is a magnificent hack of a game: there is no gameplay beyond the initial state, yet it can still provide hours of fun.
