DESCRIPTION

AXlife is a program to play the well known cellular automata,
life. AXlife is based upon the definitive life program, Xlife,
which runs on Unix X-Windows.

Features:

 o Unlike other life programs, AXlife does not limit the size
   of the cellular automata to the size of the screen. AXlife
   keeps a record of all active cells, allowing a maximum life
   pattern of 2^32 by 2^32 (2^32 is about 4,300,000,000).

 o Due to the calculation method used, the speed at which
   AXlife runs depends on the number of active cells, not the
   area of the whole life grid. This makes AXlife *much* faster
   than other life programs, especially for large patterns.

 o AXlife comes with loads (>200) of pattern files, showing
   all the interesting patterns that have been discovered.
