F#: More Mandelbrot Madness


Since no-one took the bait, i had to implement my own F# bitmap writer. This was fun. Dodgy code here.

Suddenly though, Josh from TechnoFattie, wrote and said he'd tried it. His code is neater than mine, and I liked his colour scheme.

Yoink. I modified my code to use his approach in places. Then, to try and stay ahead, I implemented experimental support for zooming and panning.

"Experimental support" is a great term -- in this case it means, approximately, 'broken'.

Funny though, that this runs a great deal slower than an old fractal studio program I had on my 286.

There's a lot to be said for problem-specific optimisations.
