Description

This article is from the sci.fractals FAQ, by Michael C. Taylor and Jean-Pierre Louvet with numerous contributions by others.

47 Where can I obtain software packages to generate fractals?

* Amiga
* Java
* Macintosh
* MS-DOS
* MS-Windows
* SunView
* UNIX
* X-Windows

* Software to calculate fractal dimension

For Amiga:

(all entries marked "ff###" are directories where the inividual
archives of the Fred Fish Disk set available at
ftp://ftp.funet.fi/pub/amiga/fish/ and other sites)

General Mandelbrot generators with many features: Mandelbrot (ff030),
Mandel (ff218), Mandelbrot (ff239), TurboMandel (ff302), MandelBltiz
(ff387), SMan (ff447), MandelMountains (ff383, in 3-D), MandelPAUG
(ff452, MandFXP movies), MandAnim (ff461, anims), ApfelKiste (ff566,
very fast), MandelSquare (ff588, anims)

Mandelbrot and Julia sets generators: MandelVroom (ff215), Fractals
(ff371, also Newton-R and other sets)

With different algorithmic approaches (shown): FastGro (ff188, DLA),
IceFrac (ff303, DLA), DEM (ff303, DEM), CPM (ff303, CPM in 3-D),
FractalLab (ff391, any equation)

Iterated Function System generators (make ferns, etc): FracGen (ff188,
uses "seeds"), FCS (ff465), IFSgen (ff554), IFSLab (ff696, "Collage
Theorem")

Unique fractal types: Cloud (ff216, cloud surfaces), Fractal (ff052,
terrain), IMandelVroom (strange attractor contours?), Landscape
(ff554, scenery), Scenery (ff155, scenery), Plasma (ff573, plasma
clouds)

Fractal generators: PolyFractals (ff015), FFEX (ff549)
