With this program, the user can draw the attractors of hyperbolic iterated function systems (IFS or HIFS) where the functions are affine transformations of the plane. The user can enter the functions graphically using a mouse or read in the functions in a numerical format from a data file. The data file structure is the same as used for the program Fracint. The program will convert the graphical input into numerical data.

You can also print out the picture of the attractor together with the associated numerical data. Pictures can also be saved in GIF format. A large number of examples are provided.

C source code is included.
