Game of Life

Game of Life simulates the growth of cells. The survival of each cell and birth of new cells depends on how many living cells there are in the neighbor positions.

With this macro, you can edit the cells on a grid. Then press enter to evolve one generation, or press R to animate. The size of the grid can be freely adjusted by adjusting the size of the window.
