Current:

Code: Select all

`x = 4, y = 3, rule = 12/34/3`

A2.A$A2.A$.2A!

Notation currently used by Catagolue and apgsearch:

Code: Select all

`x = 4, y = 3, rule = g3b34s12`

A2.A$A2.A$.2A!

Converting this into something closer to the Golly notation would result in G3/B34/S12, or, alternatively (to retain Golly's current positioning of the amount of generations), B34/S12/G3.

Of course, the old notation would still be usable, and would be converted to the new notation (much like 23/3 --> B3/S23).
