From the author's description:
"Fractal Dimension Calculator calculates the so called Rbox dimensionS of an
object represented on a surface. For a curve the box dimension is the same
as the Hausdorff-Besicovitch dimension for 1 <= D <= 2.
"Fractal Dimension Calculator takes a black and white image in the form of a
Macintosh PICT file or clipboard contents and uses the box counting
algorithm to estimate the fractal dimension of the object represented in
the image. The RobjectS is assumed to be the black part of the image
although the program provides for image inversion (as well as outline
tracing). It creates a text file containing the various box sizes and
resulting counts (and their appropriate logarithm values) that a user can
import (copy/paste) into their favorite graphing/analysis package for
calculating the dimension from the slope. Besides miscellaneous options the
user can also adjust the range of box sizes used in the computation."
