Plaintext (cellular automata)
- For "plaintext" in the more widely-used sense, see Plain text.
"Plaintext" is a format for storing patterns of cellular automata. Despite the name, it is a structured, albeit simple and text-based, format. It was introduced by Edward Martin's implementation of the Game of Life. It is very similar to the more widely-supported Life 1.05, and presumably Plaintext files could be read after (trivial) conversion to that format.
