Readme for hfractal-

[back to package description]
OpenGL Fractal renderer. Currently only renders the Mandelbrot set, but can (and will) be easily extened to other fractals.
Doesn't play well with xmonad - use on the floating layer.

						  in escape algorithm.
		p            -    Print a hi-res image of the current location

Can exploit multiple cores - Use hfractal [opts] +RTS -N{cores} to enable this.
