|Purpose||Search for oscillators and spaceships|
|Created by||Karel Suhajda|
JavaLifeSearch (abbreviated as JLS) is a platform-independent Java version of David Bell's lifesrc search program for finding new oscillators and spaceships, written by Karel Suhajda. It includes some new search options, notably the ability to prune the search space in the middle of a search by tracking the list of cells that have always been assigned the same state, either ON or OFF, in every previously-discovered solution.
