i'm not sure if he means this but the game of life program is a 0-player game, a sort of emulator which, with a few rules, will display the creation and destruction of life, i.e. the evolution of "species".  it's fascinating, check it out.

Yes, its a "game" that you make through coding and once compiled a bunch of stars (*) start appearing and disappearing.  It is pretty complicated. Was wondering if anyone knew how to make it.

maybe the algorithm heading on the wikipedia page will prove useful.  you'll need to understand the methods of manipulating dynamic memory since it's an infinitely costly game where cells continue to be generated and also dead cells can be regenerated, making it ever-expanding and could possibly surpass your array borders.

Actually, I have (somewhere) the code for that from when I took a course in C++.  It is not that complex to do, except that even with just the 4 rules it is very, very, very easy to not get it write.  What do you want to know about it?

Used in many types of software including music players, video games, and many large scale applications.
