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.
libcsv_parser++ is a C++ library for parsing text files to extract records and fields. The records can be delimited with any set of characters. It makes the following assumptions: the record terminator is only one character in length; the field terminator is only one character in length; and the fields are enclosed by single characters, if any. The parser can handle documents where fields are always enclosed, not enclosed at all, or optionally enclosed. When fields are strictly all enclosed, there is an assumption that any enclosure characters within the field are escaped by placing a backslash in front of the enclosure character. The software could be ported to Windows with very little effort.
