    Convert the binary into decimal...

    For rule 30, the binary equivalent in decimal 1-4 is 1 (black). 5-7 and 0 is 0 (white).

    If I want to store the new state, I just convert the binary in the current state i.e. 110 to decimal which is 6, which I know is 0 according to the rule. The 0 is then stored in the new state.
    And my face has just fallen off.......

    I didn't understand any of that, and I'm doing two automata modules. No offence Mike, I'm sure it means your idea is fantastically complex and too clever for me to understand :awesome:

    Rule 30


    Top row = current state
    Bottom row = new state

    If black is 1, and white is 0. The first one (all black top row = 111) which is 7 in decimal. If you did this calculation for the rest, you'd find that the binary equivalent for:
    1 (001 = w, w, b)
    2 (010 = w, b, w)
    3 (011 = w, w, b)
    4 (100 = b, w, w)

    all have black in the bottom row. So simply, if the decimal is between 1 and 4, the new state is black.

    :p: I was asleep at 3 though, which means I slept for 14 and a half hours :lolwut:. That never happens...

    ..and to be honest if I hadn't forced myself out of bed when I noticed the time I would've happily gone back to sleep again

    :hand: I'm up now. The only way I can envisage myself fixing this before Thursday is to stay awake all night and then sleep early tomorrow evening.
