What exactly are you supposed to time? More specifically, do you include init and cleanup routines and the reading of the file?The instructions seem to imply that you measure the whole thing (including init, etc.). Is this correct?

To clarify, it would seem that, unlike in the original Game of Life, where all cells act in the same turn, there are two turns within each turn of the Maze of Life. The BLUE cell (player) makes its move, then 'acts' (die, live) all in one half of each round. After the BLUE cell is accounted for, then the rest of the cells 'act'.This is a divergence from the original Game of Life that may not be immediately obvious.

Clickmaze test cases

Hi All,

I have attached test files which, I hope, are the same problems as on the clickmaze web site.
Hope these can be of use to people.

1) The first one is the same as the example in the problem definition.
2) These where made under linux so the line ending might be a bit short. i.e. not \\r and \\n.
