Life searching software

WinLifeSearch: A Windows port of David Bell's lifesrc, by Jason Summers.

torus: A somewhat crude random torus search program, used to search for high-period oscillators, wicks, and agars. This is C source code only; you must have a C compiler, and have some knowledge of C programming, to use it. [RandomAgar (see below) is generally better, though may not be quite as fast in some cases.]
