zasim.zacformat - text_to_cell Interop

Text to Cell is a piece of Software developed by Tobias Maier. It takes a high-level description of a cellular automaton as input and outputs different formats. One of them is made for interoperability with zasim. It can be loaded and simulated with a ZacSimulator and its data can be displayed with a ZacConsoleDisplay.

This module implements whatever’s necessary to work with .zac files like text_to_cell outputs.


Turn a name of a subcell into x/y coords

zasim.zacformat.c2n(x, y)
zasim.zacformat.draw_box_template(boxes, t_w=1, w=None, h=None)[source]

Create an ascii art template suitable for string interpolation.

If you want correct outer borders, you need to wrap box positions for y=-1, y=h+1, x=-1 and x=w+1.

  • boxes – a list of x, y tuples that show which fields are filled.
  • w – the width of each of the boxes.

a list of strings usable for drawing an ascii box art.

zasim.zacformat.draw_tiled_box_template(boxes, w=1, twodim=True)[source]

This makes template chunks for either four corners, four sides and a center for a lattice of box-templates or - if twodim is False - for the left and right end and the body of a line of box-templates.
