What is the purpose of line 12? Appending a string to an array? Does that make sense?

I'd advise breaking this down into multiple functions that each perform one duty.

tmpArr is an array. I'm making an x*x array.

Okay, so I figured out my original problem. But now I have an even bigger problem.

First of all, I am trying to make a javascript implementation of Conway's Game of Life(CGoL). Now, for CGoL to work, you have to update all of the squares once, and only once without letting an update of an adjacent square impact it. Basically, I have to update all of the squares at the same time. How do I do that?

Here's my updated code:

You stash the updated values somewhere else, and then when you've calculated all of them, you copy them back to where the original values are.

Or alternatively: you copy all of the original values somewhere else, and then use the somewhere-else values to compute the new original values.

Thanks that works, but now I have another problem. How would I push an empty array into an array? Specifically, how do I push [] into simView.grid?

So right now my issue is that I cannot read the value of the 2D array. Here is my code.
