in reply to Game of life ran by unpack function

To run on Cygwin, the ncurses package is needed for "tput.exe". Otherwise, you get a message regarding that across the screen while it runs. It runs great and is very cool!

This helped me discover a new cygwin command in the process:
cygcheck.exe --find-package /usr/bin/tput.exe ncurses-5.7-18

[jdporter]: I guess that the most direct way of doing it is with some magical incantation involving unpack or whatever
[jdporter]: let me google that for me ;-)
[jdporter]: hex points explicitly to oct, which does the job. :-D
