Curlicue Fractals
I first saw Curlicue Fractals on another BASIC forum, where someone named Aurel and another named PeterMaria showed some examples. That site is no longer on the web. After quite a bit of playing around with Curlicue Fractals, I decided to share these mathematical oddities with everyone. 

My first impression of Curlicue Fractals is that of the painting by Vincent van Gogh called 'Starry Night'.

They're pretty much just what the name says and are extremely dependent on the initial value used to begin the plotting process. In the program listing I called this the 'seed' value.

I've used seed values from 0.00001 to 9.999999 and they all seem to generate a unique curlicue.

BlitzPlus executable and source in 7z archive.

(Note: If translated to a language that has the choice between using 'single precision' or 'double precision' I would suggest using singles to display more varied fractals.)

RE: Curlicue Fractals
Oh yeah! That might be fun to try in a new language.

Yeah, QB64 is a lot faster than JB or SB.
