Main Question or Discussion Point

Is there a code for the mandelbrot set that creates an image with an high resolution so that we can zoom and see the fractal over and over again ?

There is an algorithm that builds the mandelbrot set, but the actual keystrokes and commands are different in various programming languages. Look up 'how to make the mandelbrot set in X language', where X is your programming language of choice.

Thanks for the memory. I wrote several such programs in the 80s and had great fun watching them evolve on the screen. It took about 15 minutes per frame, and it was one of the rare cases when slower computers were more fun than fast ones.

A quick google search of "mandelbrot python" returned many hits.

I made a small program in Matlab a few months ago that drew the Mandelbrot set. It took about 15 seconds. To make 5 frames. :biggrin:
