The game of Life

The game of Life

Everybody knows the game of Life, where a program simulates the life of a cell colony that is subject to strict survival rules. This VB6 super-optimized implementation is so fast that creates an animated sequence of cells before your eyes. It uses a good algorithm and no special undocumented tricks, so you can study its commented source code to understand more about transition matrixes, and change it to apply new survival rules if you like.
