# PostScript fractals

This page is dedicated to fractals generated by PostScript programs. PostScript
is a powerful language used in printers. The hole ide with this page is to
collect PostScript programs that generate fractals useing a postscript engine
either in a printer or in a PostScript viewer. If you have or know about other
PostScript fractals please send me an
e-mail.

## Fern

This fern was posted on news by Maurizio Loreti <loreti@pd.infn.it> when I did request PostScript fractal resources.

## Tree

When I did try to learn PostScript I wrote a postscript program that use
recursion to draw a tree.

"F. J. D. Uhlik" <uhlik@sals.icpf.cas.cz> did post this tree on Usenet

## Snowflakes

This snowflak is distributed as an example with the ghostscript program.

John B. Oxton <joxton@icds5.rsc.raytheon.com> did copy this fractal from the net years ago.

Joseph Hertzlinger <jhertzli@ix.netcom.com> did post a
Korck Snowflake on Usenet and hi improved it with filling the
snowflake with gray color.

## Appolonain net

Joseph Hertzlinger <jhertzli@ix.netcom.com> did write this
Appolonian net ps program.

## TreePhylum

John Holder <jholder@frii.com> did provide this fractal in response
to a news posting.

## Koch knife

A fractal posted on Usenet by John Bailey

## Foure Self-Inversive Circles

A fractal created by Will Gilbert <wgilbert@UWaterloo.ca>
