### Re: apgsearch v1.0

Hello, I'm back! (after a long time) Has anyone modified apgsearch so that it could run differently sized soups, like 4x4, 5x5, or 32x32? I am doing a project on data analysis in school, so I thought this might be a good place for data. (I'm posting it in this thread because I still am using the Pyt...

### Re: Population sum

Like this? import golly cells = golly.getcells(golly.getrect()) sum = (len(cells) + len(golly.evolve(cells, 1))) / 2 # divide by 2 because there is both an x and y coordinate for one cell golly.note("The population between this generation and the next is %d" % sum) A block therefore would output 8 a...

### Re: Soup search results

So what's the next likely new period for Catagolue? Any bets on whether it will be an unknown oscillator next time? If you're talking about asymmetric soups, then I would bet it's going to be period 24, namely a figure eight on pulsar. Not surprisingly, I has been right :wink: http://catagolue.apps...

### Re: How does one start creating stuff here?

It might be because people often don't want things handed to them. Conway's Game of Life holds a deep well of secrets to discover, and those who get tentatively interested in it seem to have a "Wow!

### Re: Python Questions

An insertion sort is good Python practice, but it's certainly not going to be fast enough to compete with Golly's g.evolve(). Why? Python is a high-level interpreted language, where Golly's C++ code is compiled into an executable. So if they're doing pretty much the same amount of number-crunching,...

Patterns are translated back and forth between Golly's internal representation and Python cell lists in a fairly straightforward way, no tricky shortcuts. This is why g.evolve(0) always returns a freshly sorted copy of cell list, with any overlaps taken care of. Golly does (what is usually) quite a...
