This is a discussion on WireWorld within the Contests Board forums, part of the Community Boards category; How does the program receive the map? As a command-line parameter? Or is that implementation-defined?...

    Yeah, a filename supplied by a command-line parameter:
    The task:
    Write a program in standard C89 or C++98 (including the STL) to implement a wireworld simulation.
    The program will be given a single command line parameter, namely the name of the configuration file in the above format.
    If you understand what you're doing, you're not learning anything.

    Oops, I missed that, thanks.

    Should the program assume that the terminal is 80x25? If the input file is 80 wide, for the tty implementation under DOS, you can't print a newline after the text.

    In *nix there are environment variables COLUMNS and LINES which give the dimensions of the screen.
