As a small side project, I am going to have a go at makeing a Fractal generator using C++ and SDL.
I just wanted to check with somebody that knows about Fractals. Am I correct in my understand, that effectively I calculate a fractal function, such as f(z)=z^2+c. to give a number such as 4+5i, would the co-ordinates (if 4+5i is the answer) simply be x=4 and y = 5?
I know then, that I would simply feed that 4+5i back into the z parameter of the function and go again, and then colour each pixel depending on if the function ever leaves the screen and if so by how many iterations.
