Hi guys :

We over at the RudolF world have been working on fixing and commenting a version of conways game of life, in clojure :

Its here :

To run it, you can clone the project and simply type

In particular, I'm not sure what this method does - or how to comment/doc it . Any thoughts ?
This is a pedagogical exersize, so feel free to ramble on if something interesting comes up.

Any hints or contributors ?

PS @Seancorfield - I added you as a colloborator on the github fork already in case your interested.

UPDATE : Well - that particular method appears , in a sense, to be "polymorphic",,, which is why I was confused.

In any case, we've made some more progress and almost have it working - with the exception of some fancy concurrent constructs and an "engine" map which
appears to be uncommented, we may have it working soon enough.

I agree. Here's the link:
