The Mandelbrot Set is a fractal set in the complex plain. A point **c** is in the set if the equation *z = z*^{2 }+ c does not diverge when iterated. Since the Mandelbrot Set is a fractal, it has an infinite perimeter and no matter how far it is zoomed, always has interesting features.

This program calculates and displays the Mandelbrot set using C++ and the SDL graphics library. White points are in the set, and black points are not in the set.
