Good call! Forgot to find it... on a new machine now... but I'll try and dig it out and get it onto github.

Yeah I do have an account on git hub though nothing of real use on there right now. If I can a) find the code, and b) get it working I'll be sure to put it up. I might fix it to render on screen first, it actually just dumps RAW RGB data to a file which I was importing with Gimp :)

@WouterZeldenthuis I'll dig out the source if I can find it and see if it's still working. It's not pretty, I never optimised it for performance or anything just got it working as quickly as I could :)

@WarrenP Yes! Typo on my part :( I've got four of his books and love them.

@AsafKaragila, there is some more information in a blog post I wrote about it here: laceysnr.com/2010/10/attack-of-buddahbrot.html

It was just a C program I wrote myself after reading about the Mandelbrot sait in one of A. K. Dewney's books. When I was a kid I was fascinated with the Mandelbrot set but never understood it, after reading a brief description of the algorithm in the book as an experienced developer it surprised me how simple it was. Took about half an hour to do the Mandelbrot set code, but getting nice renders of the Buddhabrot was harder - not least because it was taking several hours to perform a high-resolution render.
