Description:This is a very basic and straight forward approach to programming the Mandelbrot set on the Prime. It just shows how programming and using complex numbers/variables in a program work on the Prime. It is in no way optimized for speed, neither mathematically nor in terms of implementation. Also, it's not a Prime App (thus not using the Symb/Plot/Num and their Setup keys) and has no interactivity (like zooming) at all. The area of the Mandelbrot set is defined by setting the corresponding variables in the source code. Take it as a starting point for your further explorations, be it in Prime programming or in math. And feel free to expand it and maybe make an App out of it with interactivity.

I believe something went wrong with the uploading of this one, because the LSclr part differs from the version found at

That causes this version to colorize the fractal in a much uglier fashion... But if I fix LSclr then it renders just like on the image. The difference is in such a way that makes me think something went wrong too, as it makes very little sense at all. So I recommend changing the LSclr part according to the link above as that will make the fractal look a lot nicer.
