MCell is a 32-bit Windows program used to exploring existing and creating new rules and patterns of 1-D and 2-D Cellular Automata. MCell handles all popular formats of Cellular Automata patterns (Life 1.05, Life 1.06, RLE, dbLife, ProLife, XLife, MCLife, MCell and variations of the above), both from UNIX and DOS formats, what makes it a perfect tool for viewing large collections of Cellular Automata patterns available on the Internet.
