Author is a companion tool used for authoring simple cellular automata web pages.
The multiple entry x input field provides a mechanism for specifying column dependent data, while the y input field specifies row dependent data. Entries in the x and y input fields are seperated by semicolons. The resultant table of cellular automata will have a number of columns corresponding to the number of x input field entries and a number of rows corresponding to the number of y input field entries.
The characters 'x' and 'y' can be thought of as variables. When they appear in other text input fields, the corresponding x or y input field entry will be used in the result table of cellular automata.
