The Mandelbrot Set

Draw a box to zoom. Use WASD to navigate. Hit r to zoom back out fully and o to zoom out a little. You can change the resolution by pressing 1, 2, or 3. This is good if you are running slowly. The keys z, x, c, v, b, n, and m control the accuracy, with z being the least accurate and m being the most accurate. If your computer is slow, try less accuracy. You can also fine tune the accuracy by pressing plus or minus.
