quick store patterns in coll

    May 31 2011 | 6:38 pm
    I'm entering all the coll entries for my patch into the coll by index, and then the coordinates for 'live' cells (white = live, black = dead)
    attatched is a part of the patch that is relevant.
    there must be an easier way to store the 'patterns' of live cells into the coll (at a new index each time)
    I know it may seem like a stupid question to ask but i'm getting sick of entering them manually
    all advice greatly appreciated

      give this a try:
      now you only need to figure out a logic as to how and where you want to store it in the coll, but that shouldn't be too difficult.

      Wow, thanks MIB! I keep forgetting about the 'zl' family.
      This works really nicely thanks, I can just add an 'insert' and an 'index' value into the message box each time and quickly store the list
      Cheers again, a wuick simple solution
