New old project

spiral wave A few days ago, I uploaded a very old (almost ancient) code project to Github. It is a relic of my studies at the university (2007!) and I have used this code for my diploma thesis. After tweaking the code quite a bit, I managed to get it running and spitting out this nice spiral wave (which makes this blog look a lot more colorful than originally I intended).

From the entire Java files I produced back than I included only the one that have a good purpose (like the one above). I also had to add a build file for ant because originally, this project was developed in Eclipse. I am quite happy to see the old stuff still working.

Please, go and try yourself:

git clone

and then

ant [clean,compile,jar,run]

To produce the actual spiral wave you have to process the created data files. That part is not included. If you like to see how this works, drop me an email.
