Author's Description: cirCA-Sim is a Cellular Automata SIMulator, that uses CustomIzed Rules (lame, I know, but it's the best I could come up with). Rules are loaded from an XML file containing a list of cells and the rules for changing them. Then, a grid of cells is loaded either from a .txt or .bmp file, and the simulater runs one step at a time, once for each key-press. It's a very simple program, the interface is very simple. In fact, aside from the 3 keys used to load files and exit, and the use of any other key to step through the simulation, there isn't one. See the README.txt in the .zip file for further directions, and the XMLFORMAT.txt for details on the tags used in the rule files. Two rule files, one .txt format grid file, and two .bmp format grid files are included in the download, along with the windows binary, and the source-code.
