The first line contains the name of the creature. Remaining lines list each of the creature's instructions, the first two characters being uppercase hex digits, followed by a space, and the instruction that those digits represent. There is no end marker to the text -- the last line simply contains the last instruction.
Text that is dragged back into the soup must be in a similar format, or the drag is not accepted. It is parsed as follows:
Subsequent lines are parsed to extract the first two digits, which must be
valid hexadecimal numbers using UPPERCASE for digits A to F. These digits must be the
first two characters on the line, and must lie in the range 00 to 1F. Remaining text on each line is ignored (so you don't
need to type in all the instruction names).
The last line of the file should contain a single carriage return character.
Text that does not match these criteria will not be accepted, and the drag will zoom back to its origin. If the text is accepted, a new creature with the given genotype is entered into the soup at the drop location. It is given a new name, not necessarily the one specified in the dragged text.
