Snow Path Formation Simulator is a program that models the process of people forming very distinct, and yet not always altogether logical looking, paths in the snow as they walk across open spaces. The evolving condition of the snow is displayed graphically. This project may eventually mature into a screensaver.

Release Notes: A file dumping bug was fixed. The "-cycles" option now recognizes 0 to mean "unlimited".
Release Notes: The "-width" and "-height" options have been replaced with "-cellsize" to make it more like a screensaver. An RPM is now available.
Release Notes: This release features a dramatically improved path choosing algorithm and an improved install process. An XML file was added for use in Xscreensaver. Xscreensaver support can be added automatically with "make xscreensaver". It now compiles with GCC 3.2 and includes many other small fixes and additions.
Release Notes: This release includes bugfixes, improved error reporting and documentation, increased portability, small algorithmic changes, and better efficiency. It adds a number of minor features, including automatic display refreshing, forbidden areas, and the ability to save the current map state. It handles a wider variety of color images, and will accept greyscale and black and white files as well.
Release Notes: Various speed improvements (including that it runs as one program instead of two talking to each other), some more neat examples, ability to just about any standard image type as input, a new -rainbow option along with various minor features, FreeBSD support (and probably various other systems as well), and various minor bugfixes.
