LSystem Language 

LSystem Language SyntaxSkip this page if you are not a programmer. The LSystem language is used to produce LSystem Fractals. The LSystem language supported by the Fractal Science Kit fractal generator is adopted from the Fractint syntax described in the Fractint LSystem Documentation and the Fractint LSystems Tutorial by William McWorter. There are many example LSystem files available on the Internet (see below). The following is a brief description of the syntax. Please see the above references for detailed information. An LSystem program has the following syntax: <TITLE> { <TITLE> is the name of the LSystem and <INSTRUCTIONS> are LSystem statements. The different LSystem statements are given by: Angle={COUNT} : set angle used by '+' and '' below to
360/{COUNT} Please note the following:
Example: Hilbert { ; The Science of Fractal Images, page 278 The above LSystem program generates the Hilbert Curve. For additional details on LSystem fractals see the following: Eric W. Weisstein. "Lindenmayer System." From MathWorldA Wolfram Web Resource.
