#X text 36 280 As to the exact variable and parameter ranges to use
\, you will have to consult each fractals help file. You can also use
the "Searching" functions to randomly find a new attractor set \, and
then use those values in either a set of messages to the fractal \,
or in its creation arguments.;

#X text 98 199 sets the variables back to their initial state **;
#X text 181 221 sets the variables to an explicit state ***;
#X text 195 242 sets parameters to explicit state ****;
#X text 34 26 Create a fractal with or without a set of variables and
parameters \, passed as creation arguments. Without the creation arguments
\, the class defaults will be used for the fractal. With the arguments
\, a new fractal is created using the arguments as the defaults.;
#X text 35 104 To use a fractal \, create the instance \, and optionally
pass it an initial state of variables and a set of parameters. Then
repeatedly 'bang' on the input to iterate thru the fractals variable
states. Using a 'reset' message will return the variables to their
initial state \, or to the explicit values passed.;
#X text 38 369 ** - The initial state can be explicitly set by passing
the arguments at creation time for the fractal \, or (without creation
arguments) the class default value will be used.;
#X text 37 414 *** - When setting the variables to an arbitrary state
\, the stream may not be in a "stable" state. You may need to iterate
the fractal several hundred (or thousand) times to obtain a "stable"
state. If you pass a set of variables that were taken from the 'search'
(or 'show') results \, the values most likely will be in a "stable"
#X text 38 500 **** - Do remember that not all combinations of parameters
result in an attractor set.;
