3 This is the reference distribution for the Xigxag string-copying automaton.
4
5 For a definition of the Xigxag automaton, see the file `xigxag.html` in
6 the `doc` directory. (I didn't convert it from HTML to Markdown because
7 it has a lot of mathematical-type markup, like subscripts and superscripts,
8 that don't have equivalents in core Markdown, and the main advantage of it
9 being in Markdown is so that it can be viewed directly on Github and
10 Bitbucket. It should probably be converted to some more mathematically-
11 oriented markup language at some point, I suppose.)

13 This distribution also contains an "interpreter" for Xigxag, written in
14 Perl, as `xigxag.pl` in the `src` directory.

16 All of these materials are in the public domain; see the file UNLICENSE
17 in the distribution's root directory for more information.
