The Life algorithm was developed by someone else a good while ago. Since then it has seen many (hundreds) of implementations on computers. This is another one. Blife started as a personal project to implement a life program with some options I found lacking in other life programs for DOS. It was originally intended to be an at home, for myself program, but as it began to grow I decided that I would release it into shareware in case anyone was looking for the same thing in a life program.
