# Haskell Quiz/SimFrost/Solution Dolio

This solution is based solely on list processing. The main datatype, Region a, is simply an alias for a. At each step, the region is broken into sub-regions (the 2x2 squares), each is rotated or frozen appropriately, and then the sub-regions are combined back into a single region.

The text output follows the Ruby Quiz convention of ' ' for vacuum, '.' for vapor and '*' for ice. A '|' is added on the left side of each line of the grid to distinguish them from separator lines.

The default output of this program is a number of PPM images of each step in the process. They are called frostNNN.ppm, where NNN starts from 100.

This code makes use of the random monad and the splittable random monad.
