I am new to fractal programming or is that generating....
These are two different terms: Programming
-- A set of coded instructions for insertion into a machine, in accordance with which the machine performs a desired sequence of operations. A procedure for solving a problem that involves collection of data, processing, and presentation of results. (Basically, to write computer type code that will do specified actions.) Generating
-- To bring into being; give rise to: generate a discussion. To form (a geometric figure) by describing a curve or surface. To produce by instructing a computer to follow given parameters with a skeleton program. (Another words, to render an image using values and formulas within a fractal "program".)
.....its all right playing with someone formula but I do not know what I am doing, is there any free tutorials on how to make a fractal from scratch.
There are several available. Some come with the particular fractal application that one has downloaded, either as part of the HELP file, or as a separate document (PDF, DOC, TXT, HTML, etc...). Others are available online usually at the same location that is the main download site for the application, or from a link specified at the main site.
Then there are private websites where individuals create their own tutorials, tips, and useful information. Using something as simple as a search engine, with the keywords of the fractal application's name and the word "tutorial" will give links to such sites.
Words I have found in parameter file are as follows (Global, builtin, init, loop, bailout, default and switch) but they do not mean anything to me.
Most of these words come from terms used by Programmers that write computer code, for example: Global
--- Of or relating to an entire program, document, or file. Something that can be used throughout the program and or formula, and not defined to a specific area or routine. Builtin
--- Constructed as part of a larger unit; not detachable. Forming a permanent or essential element or quality. Something that was created specifically for the program. Init
------ To set to a starting position or value. (Short for "initialize".) Loop
----- A sequence of instructions that repeats either a specified number of times or until a particular condition prevails. Default
--- A particular value for a variable that is assigned automatically by an operating system and remains in effect unless canceled or overridden by the operator. Switch
--- 1. The act or process of chaging from one thing to another.
2. A device, field, or value to allow the notification of intent from one thing to another. Bailout
-- To escape from a "loop", usually when a certain condition is met.
So I need lots help.
Almost all of the above definitions are available in a standard dictionary (that is where I got them). If a physical one is not available, then there are several that can be found online. (Again, try a good search engine.)
