*1 The specification method of color|
Color is decided by combination of five collar buttons at the lower right of a window ("R", "G", "B", "a" (a1-a4), "b" (b1-b3)), and slide-bars. "R", "G", and the "B" button are reversal of the element (red, green, blue) of a color. A rough color pattern is set up with the "a" (a1-a4) button. A fine color pattern is set up with the "b" (b1-b3) button. A color palette becomes what reflected the state of "R", "G", and the "B" button in the combination of collar buttons "a" and "b".
A slide-bar specifies whether the Mandelbrot-set is colored with which portion of a color palette as the starting point.
By using a color palette and a slide bar, no less than a total of 96000 kinds of colors can be chosen very easily.

(1) The value of the coordinates "x".
(2) The value of the coordinates "y".
(3) The value of width "w".
(smaller one of x-width and y-width)
(4) Aspect ratio. (x-width / y-width)
(5) The number of iterations. (decimal)
