Great stuff these Mandelbrots! Not like on a Cray, but good enough to put on
slides. While compiling the latest version I came accross the following
1. line 535 of mand.c reads:
redir_fp == NULL;
The compiler states that this has no effect (true!). Is the correct one
redir_fp = NULL;
2. mand2.c prints out 11 warnings of "pointers not pointing to same object".
These can be fixed by prepending the appropriate lines with (APTR).
3. The default values for the Mandelbrot Dragon seem a bit odd. I found best
the ones from the Scientific American article (actually mirrored, since the
function is the original one from Mandelbrot's book):
SR = -0.5, ER = 2.0, SI = -1.25, EI = 1.25
4. Also I got stuck twice in the Analize section. No way to get out, beside
rebooting. I think this is a bug.
Thanks a lot for a great program.
