ca-ga is a toy artificial life simulation that uses genetic algorithms on large cellular automata. It uses simple but easily extended DNA that is 8k long by default, though you can take the size out to anything you have time to evolve. It sits under each cell of a 128x128 board and orders operations to transfer energy in the hopes of achieving a kill and breed. The simulation features a mutating fitness function, emergent sex, and a proof of concept real world fitness function. After enough generations, the cells or genes could achieve collectivism and organismhood, coordinating the values of the hotspots that determine board temperature in order to maintain a desired equilibrium. But maybe not. If you work in a fitness function, an optimizing problem solver results.
The Supernova programming language is a modern scripting language and the first one that presents the concept of programming with direct fiction description using a clear subset of pure human language. It is easy for users with no programming experience. It is not sensitive to case, spaces, tabs, or line breaks. It support GUI programming. The source code can be written in a mixture of Arabic and English. It lets you distribute directly executable application files. It lets you use the Windows API and call DLL functions. It includes libraries for sound playing, sound recording, and movie playing. It includes commands for text processing, date and time processing, multi-dimension arrays, and file I/O. Its documentation includes many samples and tests.
