The following was cut and pasted strait fromt the SampleKillDataLog.txt as posted for program checking...

******************************************************
Command 30: status Tom
Grendel Tom 42 (6, 7)
----------------------------------------------
Command 31: status Lunch
Life form not found: Lunch
----------------------------------------------
Command 32: status Munch
Browser Munch 54 (6, 7)
----------------------------------------------
Command 33: create browser Thumper 20 6 7
Added a Browser.

Command 34: tick 3
--------------- tick number: 8
Tom moved east
Munch moved south
Thumper moved east
--------------- tick number: 9
Tom gonna munch Thumper
Munch moved east
*******************************************************

The question becomes, Tom -grendel- is located at (6,7) when Thumper -browser- is created. On the first simulation tick, Tom moves first -east-, then Thumper moves -east also-. No problem yet.

Next turn, Tom does not move, but eats thumper. Problem. Thumper is as called "dumb food". He moved in after Tom, and Tom did not move into him.

I was under the impression that dumb food was not to be eaten. Is this an exception that should be accounted for? More curious then anything right now.

Thanks to whomever can answere.
