What is an L file?

Contains a pattern of dots that is used as the starting point for "The Game of Life," a mathematical game developed by John Conway; often used for teaching purposes in math and computer science.

More Information

The basic rules of "The Game of Life" are 1) an empty space becomes a dot if exactly 3 neighbors are dots, 2) a dot with 2 or 3 neighboring dots stays a dot, and 3) all other cases, the space becomes or remains empty. The result is the development of some interesting patterns.
