Production Notes

This edition is a revised edition of the 1997 Third Edition, which accompanied release of the free version of CelLab including CelLab for Windows. That edition was a revised and expanded version of the 1989 printed manual which accompanied the first release of this program. In the Fourth Edition, documentation of the MS-DOS and Microsoft Windows versions of the programs (which no longer work on current Microsoft platforms) has been removed, and replaced by a description of WebCA, the cellular automata simulator which runs in a Web browser. A number of rules, patterns, and evaluators added since the Third Edition are described.
