Additional Information

Where did you get the name?
From a song by the Grateful Dead:
I'd rather be in some dark hollow where the sun don't ever shine
Then to be in some big city, in a small room, with you upon my mind
I know it has no bearing on Robocode but I love the Dead so...
Can I use your code?
Code is in the JAR. It is not very tight right yet, but feel free. Use the RWPCL please.
What's next for your robot?
DarkHallow hasn't been updated since 2005.
Does it have any White Whales?
None right now. More to come later, I am sure.
What other robot(s) is it based on?
It started as BlackPearl, which is based on Jekyl.
