Demonstrates that gliders with arbitrary speed and direction can be supported with a simple cellular automata program. To run the applet, first select "no_gliders" and "max_glider_size" and click "setup", then click "run" and adjust "speed". Use the "bi-directional" switch to generate either bi-directional or random gliders. Use the "trace" switch to display glider paths.
