An _in-progress_ implementation of A.K.Dewdney's "Corewar" in ClojureScript. There are many things that don't quite work properly yet, such as handling when a redcode assembly program is terminated. By default four (non-selectable) redcode programs are pitted against each other - at some point these will be loaded at random from a hill. The inst…

"Encodes the instruction set as part of the assembly process.
Core War programs are written in an assembly-type language called Redcode.
The eight instructions included in the version of the language presented
here are by no means the only ones possible; indeed, the original
implementation of Core War, done on a minicomputer, had a larger instruction
set. If there are many kinds of instructions, however, the encoded form of
each instruction takes up more space, and so the area of memory needed for
CORE must be larger. Mars, the program that interprets Redcode programs,
also grows as the size of the instruction set increases. The complexity of
your Core War implementation may be constrained by the amount of memory
available in your computer.
If you choose to a create your own Redcode instruction set, two points
should be kept in mind. First, each Redcode instruction must occupy a single
location in CORE. In many assembly languages an instruction can extend over
multiple addresses, but not in Redcode. Second, there are no registers
available for Redcode programs; all data are kept in CORE and manipulated
