goatbrot -- generate mandelbrot set images in PPM format )_) ___|oo) Mandelbrot Set generation-- '| |\_| --for goats! |||| # ```` Features: * Compiles with optional OpenMP support for multicore machines * Supports very large images * Multiple built-in themes * Both discrete and continuous rendering * Antialiasing * Harms no goats! Usage: goatbrot -o outfilename [options] -e examplenum example render (1-8) (should be first option) -o outfilename set output name -c re,im set center point -w width set real width -s width,height set pixel output size -i iterations set max iterations -a antialias -u continuous smoothing -q no informational output -t numthreads set number of threads -m theme set theme--names are: beej fire water Output is a PPM file, which can be converted to another format with netpbm, ImageMagick, GIMP, or anything similar. Currently only non-OpenMP builds support streaming output. Build info: See the Makefile for setting OpenMP vs non-OpenMP build options. Define GBOPENMP for OpenMP support. OpenMP depends on mmap and ftruncate, currently. gcc 4.2+ needed for OpenMP support. Seen to work under Linux and OSX. Probably works under all Unices. Needs work for Windows. GCC: Use -fopenmp on command line. XCode: In project, select GCC 4.2+, check "OpenMP" box. Visual Studio: See "Future mods", below. Use /openmp compiler switch. Future mods: Win32: Non-portable code in the following functions: parse_command_line() calls getopt, replace with ??? These functions are only needed if GBOPENMP is set: set_file_length() calls ftruncate, replace with _chsize? memory_map_file() calls mmap, replace with MapViewOfFile? memory_unmap_file() calls munmap, replace with ???
