public class GameOfLife
extends GameBoard

The GameOfLife class extends the GameBoard class to include the rules of Conway's original game of Life. A new constructor is also included that will take a GameBoard object and copy its state into the new GameOfLife.

Constructor Detail

GameOfLife

public GameOfLife(int cols,
                  int rows)
Create a new GameOfLife of size cols, rows with default cell size (defined in superclass).

Parameters:
cols - The width of the desired board.
rows - The height of the desired board.

GameOfLife

public GameOfLife(int cols,
                  int rows,
                  int cellSize)
Create a new GameOfLife of size cols, rows with cell size cellSize.

Parameters:
cols - The width of the desired board.
rows - The height of the desired board.
cellSize - The desired size of the cells (must be at least 2).

GameOfLife

public GameOfLife(GameBoard gb)
Create a new GameOfLife copying GameBoard gb.

Method Detail

doNextGen

public void doNextGen()
Runs a single generation of the game of Life and updates the game board. The rules of Life are: a cell in generation n+1 is alive if either a) it has three live neighbors in generation n, OR, b) it is alive and has two or three live neighbors in generation n.
