Buddahbrot fractal
It's in Jark's page but his QB program is in hi-res and takes ages to run. So I made a lo-res screen 13 version.
If you use ffix you will have a decent image in ten minutes.
It's just a differnet view of the Mandelbrot fractal. Melissa Green found it .

  imag(iter%) = im

  re2 = re * re
  IF re2 + im2 > 4 THEN diverts% = 1: EXIT FOR
  'plot the points of the diverting values
  IF diverts% THEN
    FOR it% = 0 TO iter%
        xx% = CINT(ABS(imag(it%) * 97))
        xs% = xx% + 160
        ys% = CINT(real(it%) * 97) + 150
        pp% = POINT(xs%, ys%)
        IF pp% < 255 AND pp% > -1 THEN PSET (xs%, ys%), pp% + 1: PSET (160 - xx%, ys%), pp% + 1
    np% = (np% + 1) AND &HFF
    IF np% = 0 THEN LOCATE , 1: PRINT USING "####.#"; TIMER - t!;
If you liked it go to Jark's page, find the hi-res program and wait all night for a real good image in a bmp file.
Ya, I did that for my math project Wink
am an asshole. Get used to it.
Cool *gets a cup of coffee* *waits* *finishes cup* *goes to work* *comes back*

hey, it's done! Smile
i]"I know what you're thinking. Did he fire six shots or only five? Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement, I've kinda lost track myself. But being as this is a .44 Magnum ... you've got to ask yourself one question: 'Do I feel lucky?' Well, do ya punk?"[/i] - Dirty Harry
How long does it take? I left it for ages (until 9500 in top left). It was turning into a blob...
If i compile it with ffix, i get a correct image in 5 minutes. In the IDE and not compiled it should take 30 minutes. The counter is in seconds.

The program does'nt have a stop condition and keeps increasing the color number of the pixels untill they are all at color 255.Tongue

So you probably patiented too much... : Big Grin

Also, I have a cold, so had brightness down to 0 and contrast to 50, so it emerged as a blob. :roll:
You're now part of the very small club of the Buddhabrot makers :lol:

You may send your code to Melinda, I think you made the only fast program for a Buddhabrot: it can take several days to get a hi-res pic !

The funny thing when I made my first Buddhabrot is that Melinda (who was still a man then, she was named Daniel until last summer) and Lori were the only two who knew this trick... I decided I would try, and managed to understand the mysterious explanation on her webpage.

Then a polish guy asked on sci.fractals if someone knew the algorithm... I was just finishing my first prog! I posted the code on my site, and that's when it all started... Paul Bourke himself issued Buddhabrots, and I've been lucky enough to get my name in the Encyclopedia of the Mandelbrot set by Robert Munafo.

And that funny story proved one thing : if you want anybody to understand an algorithm, the best language to code it is Quick-Basic!

I was thinking Melissa would be a nice person until i saw she has he page of the Bonsai Kitten as one of her bookmarks. :barf:

So i prefer not to have any relation with her...
The problem being it is not a joke !

Well, I managed to find the old Daniel Green page (it's not linked from the main site any longer, but Google still knows it).

It's quite funny to compare the "before" (Daniel) and after "Melinda" pictures...

Oh my god I didn't know what it was so I visited the Bonsai Kitten page... This is one of the most horrible things I can think of! How can people be that evil? Sincerely I'm very impressed. That should be punished with jail. Is that legal?
