Pages with invalid RLE files

Some pages link to error pages instead of RLEs.

One example is Ed
1c/n spaceships project

Some others are: seal tagalong, not the plain ship. and big glider tagalongs. Also, period 14 gun. There are probably more. :cry: :(

On that page the first reference is a deadlink. But it lives on the Wayback Archive.

http://wayback.archive.org/web/20101203183556/http://conwaylife.com/soup/methuselahs.asp?rule=B3/S23

On that page is a link to (the archive's version of)

http://conwaylife.com/pattern.asp?rle=3 ... elah_30872

which is dead both at conwaylife.com and on the archive, but the URL does contain the RLE so someone could repair the wiki RLE link.

If it's thought to be worthwhile. (Is a 20 x 20 methuselah wiki-worthy?)

The Period 14 gun page itself is empty. Was it non-empty once? I guess you need to have wiki write permission to see page history? It's not on the Wayback Archive.

Actually the link should probably be Period-14 glider gun. Karel Suhajda's pseudo-p14 is documented very nicely there. Of course we have Calcyman's pseudo-p14 since then, and chris_c's reduction of it:

#O Pseudo-period 14 glider gun #4
#N Chris Cain
#C Constructed on or around 18 April 2016,
#C   based on a previous p14 gun by Adam P. Goucher,
#C     based on a previous p14 gun by Karel Suhajda,

-- And Dietrich Leithner's original pseudo-p14, and Karel Suhajda's rebuild of that. Did I miss any intermediates?

I fixed up Ed and the two tagalong links, I think -- someone please double-check.

Also please let there not be any more of these dead RLE links, so that please nobody will post them to this thread... (I know there are probably lots of missing RLE files out there, but they're a real pian to put together and upload, especially the #N #O #C link1 link2 RLE format. Can see why it doesn't get done. I hereby challenge people to not just post the dead links, but also the actual RLE text in a code box, ready to upload to the LifeWiki.)

All other diagonal spaceships have a valid RLE page.

All fixed. I was going to worry about the "glider emulator" entry, because on a quick search I couldn't find a reference to anyone calling it that, either when it was discovered in 1999 or any other time. However, the page is there, and it seems like a more reasonable name than "the tagalong of a pair of 66-bits", so I decided not to complain.

Thanks for the RLE chunks! Those cases should be all fixed now. I'm sure those are going to be the last ones... (sigh).

For the record, what I'm having to build for each new file is something along these lines -- #N line for pattern name, #O for original discoverer, short description in #C comments, and also any relevant Wiki page links. That way anyone who sees a copy of the pattern-with-comments can immediately trace it back to the LifeWiki.

It's possibly a little too self-referential to include a link to the actual RLE file in the comments in the file itself. I saw that done somewhere or other, and since then have been copying it as if it's Standard Form, whether it really is or not...!

Wow. This was impressively helpful -- thanks! The only quicker way for me to transfer this kind of thing to the wiki, might be if all the files were attached to the message as a ZIP file.

That said -- so far I think I've edited all the headers slightly anyway, for a couple of reasons. One, it turns out that wiki links are strangely case-sensitive, so that the link below works fine, but the version above with three capital letters comes back as "no text on this page".

Also, the way I'm building these files, the name at the top includes spaces and no ".rle" or other extension, where the first link has spaces replaced by underscores, and the second link uses the pname (from the Infobox) so it won't contain any spaces at all.

#N Twin bees shuttle interactions
#C Interactions between gliders, LWSS, and MWSS catalyzed by twin bees shuttle
#C http://www.conwaylife.com/wiki/Twin_bees_shuttle
#C http://www.conwaylife.com/patterns/twinbeesshuttleinteractions.rle
...

I've been continuing to add the second link, the one that goes directly to the RLE file in the /patterns subfolder, to every header, as shown above. This may seem redundantly redundant, and even self-referential, but it turns out that it saves a lot of time and errors. The name of the pattern is always copied straight out of the broken link (unless I decide to change the name, in which case I edit the relevant link on the wiki page immediately, and then copy out that name instead.)

This way there are never any mismatches between the link in the article and the name of the file that is actually uploaded. It looks like some of the broken links were actually caused by this problem -- a file was uploaded, but under a slightly different name. Without a reference in the RLE file itself, it's hard to keep track of what the file should be named.

-----------------------------------------------

I think I'm all caught up with this thread again now -- for the next few minutes, anyway. No guarantees that I haven't accidentally left something out, though. Have been traveling a lot this weekend, a couple thousand miles by bus and train, and it's now almost 1:30am. Rather impressively, almost all the bus stations and buses, and now this overnight Amtrak train, have had good working wi-fi, which accounts for this latest burst of activity.

I hope we're starting to make a dent in the missing files problem by now. I'm not sure I'll have this much time available again for patching up the LifeWiki, for several weeks at least. My next trip is in early October.

But don't let that stop anyone from posting more broken links if you find them. Thanks again for all the detective work so far --!

How about some pages like Up dove on dove?They have just listed fewest gliders used to synthesis the object ,instead of the synthesis method itself.

That's a painfully good question. Any single one of these is easy enough to fix. I added updoveondove.rle just now, along with updoveondove_synth.rle:

But I bet there are a lot more where that came from, to the point where it's not really a reasonable project to add synthesis pattern files manually for all of them one at a time.

Also, I don't have the commented links quite right yet. It should really be just "Object 18.355 in Mark Niemiec's database", not "18.355.rle". And I kind of suspect that after the next update to that database, the URL will change to a radicaleye.com subdirectory instead of the current maybe-temporary codercontest.com location.

Anyway, I have the sneaking suspicion that it's not really a good idea to copy into the LifeWiki's pattern collection each of the thousands of individual synthesis files in Mark Niemiec's collection. Seems like over time that will guarantee a lot of stranded out-of-date syntheses on LifeWiki, as Mark's collection is gradually updated.

Maybe it makes more sense to make available a direct link to the correct database page, whenever an object is in the database. What would be the best way to do that?

It seems pretty clear that it would be a good idea to automate the creation of these synthesis files, including the /wiki/ and /pattern/ links, so that they can be rebuilt and updated automatically whenever there's an update to the source database.

Looking at just twenty or so of the linked common objects near "up dove on dove" in the same series, I found a couple that contained no minimum number of gliders *and* no synthesis file link:

http://www.conwaylife.com/wiki/Trans-boat_and_dock
-- called "down boat on dock" in Mark Niemiec's database:
http://codercontest.com/mniemiec/15/15-472.rle

http://www.conwaylife.com/wiki/Trans-rotated_R-bee
-- called "down bun up on bun" in Mark Niemiec's database:
http://codercontest.com/mniemiec/14/14-15.rle

Then I found another case like the original -- there was a link from "bee hat" over to "hungry hat", which is missing a *_synth.rle file. Haven't fixed that one yet, so it can be the new representative example.

-------------------------------------

Of course what would be _really_ nice is a search page (on conwaylife.com?) that allows any gliders-only pattern to be pasted in, with an author field for attribution purposes. The server could verify and run the pattern, look up the current record for whatever the output object is, and update the _synth file if the new pattern improves on the record.

Maybe it could send a quick tweet to twitter.com/conwaylife, just to recognize the contributor's work. Anyone who wants to spam that system would have to come up with actual record-breaking new glider syntheses.

There was some thought at one point of hosting something like this as part of Catagolue. Not sure if that might still happen at some point, or if Calcyman has discovered that there's more than enough maintenance work to do already...!

That would be absolutely wonderful, some central database updated every time a user gives it a synthesis improvement, integrated with the lifewiki's synthesis record fields. The server would have to make use of the glider rewinder script to make sure it really is a viable synthesis.

Of course, I can't really offer more than a strong approval of this; I'm not familiar enough with this type of development to get it done.

I'd be happy to write that part of the functionality, anyway (and not necessarily in Python.)

The current glider-rewinder script backs up patterns one tick at a time, and it's more designed as a helpful GUI tool -- e.g., to pull apart an incremental synthesis far enough that each of the up-to-four synchronized glider salvos can be selected separately, with no overlaps from intruding gliders from other directions. It can happily rewind any oscillator or spaceship, given the right library definitions -- I've even rewound Corderships with no problem.

The validator for this hypothetical online glider-synthesis collector can be surprisingly simple:

1) Make sure that every cluster of ON cells is glider-shaped.
2) Run the pattern and make sure that it constructs something periodic after T ticks.
3) Move each glider-shaped cluster 1000 cells away in the appropriate direction.
4) Re-run the revised pattern and make sure it constructs the same thing in 4000+T ticks.

Then you just have to look up this periodic object in the centralized database and see if it already has a synthesis, and if so, check whether the new synthesis is cheaper.

If there is currently no synthesis of the object, I suppose some trickier code would have to run to see whether the object is really anything of interest. Otherwise I guess someone could spam the server with millions of "new" syntheses of widely separated blocks, or something along those lines.

Might make more sense to put new syntheses on some kind of list for manual review. Presumably there are unnamed N-bit objects that we would want to collect a synthesis for, if one shows up, but wouldn't really need to set up a separate wiki definition page... but if so, how would a user search for an existing synthesis?

Maybe Catagolue would be a better place to store syntheses, after all --

Thanks! Fixed that one.

The 36 links I'm leaving for someone else. Last week I wrote a script for the 130-odd patterns in

http://www.conwaylife.com/wiki/Category ... tern_files

and uploaded them, so all that has to be done is to convert "nofile=true" to "rle=true" on each pattern page -- and maybe fiddle with a "viewerconfig" line in some cases to get the infobox LifeViewer to look better.

A bunch of pattern pnames also have to be renamed -- they currently contain spaces and other nonalphanumeric characters -- but I'll take care of that fairly soon. The uploaded patterns are {canonical pname}.rle, so right now the pattern pname and raw RLE match each other, but don't match the RLE file I uploaded. See "More Infobox Parameter" at the LifeWiki Tiki bar.
