Life is freeware and may be distributed freely as long as all of the files
listed are included and unmodified. You are free to make modifications for
your own use.

If you would like to construct and modify Life directly on your Newton, I
would recommend obtaining the latest version of "Newt" (newt-devenv-32), the
native Newton development environment (shareware), and "Slurpee" (slurpee-17)
a text/data transfer utility (freeware) from your favorite Newton
server/archive. Contact me (see email addresses at end) if you have trouble
finding Newt, using it initially, or have questions about registering it.
