# Deep Mandelbrot

Deep Mandelbrot is a small command line utility to compute pretty pictures (or movies) of any size and depth of the famous Mandelbrot set and its surroundings. The most important features are: multi-threaded computation to support modern multi-core CPUs efficiently; arbitrary precision computations (using libgmp, so only your hardware is the limit); normalized iteration count to achieve continuous coloring (and to avoid color bands); image oversampling to enhance the quality of the resulting PNG image; many selected color tables and the ability to re-color an already computed data frame; an optional histogram as a table for further analysis (e. g. with Octave or Matlab) plus chosen ’color table vs histogram’ as another PNG image; and support for easy movie creation.
