Description : a Pd library for the "boids" flocking simulator algorithm
Boids is a bird flight and animal flock simulator. It is based on the
same algorithm which was used in Jurassic Park for the herding
dinosaurs. Boids takes an integer argument which is the number of
boids. Each time Boids receives a bang, it calculates and outputs the
new positions of the boids. The output consists of thew coordiantes
for each boid, the number and type depending on the mode.
The flight parameters can be changed with messages. Use the 'dump'
message to output a list of the current parameter settings.
