An extensible Fractal Generator software


📰 News


💡 Description

FractalGenerator is a Qt-based program to generate fractal images (e.g. Mandelbrot set). The size of the calculated images is only limited by the computer's virtual memory. That is, images may use the full printer resolution! It is Open Source. I created this program as an example for object-oriented programming and writing Qt applications for our Linux Workshop 2003. The goal of this workshop is to continue this basic application as an Open Source project.
