+This is the readme for "Chaos PD Externals" a set of objects for PD which
+calculate various "Chaotic Attractors"; including, Lorenz, Rossler, Henon
+and Ikeda. Hopefully more will be on thier way.

+The package only includes 2 and 3 dimentional attractors. There are
+outlets for each dimention. The scale of the values vary between the
+different attractors. The object methods are as follows:
+bang: Calculate one interation of the attractor.
+reset: Reset to initial conditions.
+param: Modify the paramaters of the equation, the number of args depend
+ on the attractor. (Be careful with the parameters, an attractor
+ will go from stable to infinity in very few interations.)
+See the example patches for clarification.
+Have fun with them, I'd be happy to hear about any interesting uses you
+find for them. As well as any interesting attractor equations you come
