The Fricative applet uses the GridAreaFricative class, (which is
derived from GridAreaTwo) and the MyFont custom font class to produce a rule-based
interactive text hack.
The GridAreaFricative class uses cellular
automata principles to detect and lable various consonantal
occurences, which are rendered using different colors.
Type text in the black text area. Drag the slider up and down to
change the frequency of the C.A. update.
