Fractal Science Kit

I received the following email, which I would like to share with you.

Hi Beans,

I have just released the
Fractal Science Kit 1.0 and thought you might be interested in taking a look. The Fractal Science Kit provides an interactive programming environment with windows for viewing the fractal image, modifying the properties that define the fractal, examining the data behind the fractal, and viewing/editing the programs, macros (inline functions/methods), and color gradients, used by the Fractal Science Kit to produce the final image.

The programming language you use to develop your programs, supports a complete set of control structures including if statements, while loops, for loops, switch statements, inline functions/methods, arrays, and user defined objects. The complex data type is the fundamental variable type, and arithmetic operators and functions handle complex operands/arguments. A rich set of built-in functions/methods are included, and you can develop your own library of functions/methods for use throughout the application.

During the development of the application, I developed 100s of sample programs to illustrate how the application can be used to generate many different types of fractals including: Mandelbrot, Julia, Convergent, Newton, Orbit Traps, Sierpinski Triangle, IFS, Strange Attractors, Rep-N Tiles, Symmetric Icons, Apollonian Gasket, Circle Inversion, Schottky Group, Kleinian Group, L-System and many more.

For additional details visit the web site at The web site contains a complete description of the product and provides the full documentation, galleries, and tutorials.

Be sure to check out the gallery on the site for there are some cool images! Apart from that I can't really comment on the product, but if anyone has tired to it out, feel free to comment.
