mdz Mandelbrot Deep Zoom
Score 50%

mdz is a Mandelbrot-Set image generator which can use arbitrary precision maths to zoom into those really really deep corners. mdz is a multi-threaded Mandelbrot image generator focused upon exploration into really deep areas of the Mandelbrot-Set, and without fanciful distractions. mdz uses the MPFR maths precision library to zoom really deep!
