Fractal Landscape 1: Executable or Text Version
Press spacebar to halt the program, then s to exit completely.
This first program attempts to create a passable looking computer generated landscape, using simple mathematical rules. First take a straight line between 2 points A and B, then move the midpoint, C, up or down by a random amount, up to a given maximum. Then do the same for the straight line between A and C and A and B, but reducing the maximum. Fractal Landscape 2: Executable or Text Version
Press the spacebar to reRUN the program. Alternatively, you can see the SAME picture again by pressing either of h, l, f, or b, to move the viewpoint Higher, Lower, Forward or Back respectively. Otherwise press any other key to exit, once the picture has appeared.
The processing time in the highresolution option is quite long  a minute or so, even with a 2GHz PC. If you get fedup waiting or are worried the program has stalled, use AltF4 to exit. This program uses up to 150Mb of RAM ! Therefore, you may get an Error message,if there's not enough memory. In this case, again use AltF4 to exit.
