autom: Generates and displays patterns from next nearest neighbors cellular automata

[ gpl, graphics, library ] [ Propose Tags ]

This library is essentially a reimplementation of the pattern generation algorithm described in Wentlian Li's 1998 article COMPLEX PATTERNS GENERATED BY NEXT NEAREST NEIGHBORDS CELLULAR AUTONOMA (Choas and Fractals: A Computer Graphical Journey). This algorithm allows one to generate an amazing pattern (sometimes with fractal characteristics) by simply specifying a 32-bit integer. Please visit the project homepage for more information along with example images.

README for autom package

DEBIAN JESSIE

These build instructions work on Debian Jessie:

sudo apt-get install ghc cabal-install libghc-vector-dev libghc-gloss-dev libghc-random-dev libghc-juicypixels-dev libghc-colour-dev
cabal update
cabal install autom

I believe this should also work on Ubuntu 14.04 (Trusty Tahr).
