AsciiMandelbrot - coded by Dino Papararo (Fl()sh) 29 apr 2018
based on ascii mandelbrot app taken over the web, it's the only one I know to
use altivec extensions to draw an ascii mandelbrot set :-)
developed mainly for testing and benchmarking purposes, I hope this can be
useful to test speed of PowerPc cpus
AsciiMandelbrot is compiled with GCC to run under Amiga Os4 and MorphOs, it's
also portable to other platforms like Linux,OsX and Windows OS.
C Source code included, to compile just type MAKE in the shell :-).

AsciiMandelbrot iterations rows cols  - where iterations is number of iterations
(default 1000000), rows is numedr of printed rows (default 100), cols is number
of printed cols (default 100)
AsciiMandelbrot -? for help

New in this 2.0 version (26-Oct-2019)
* Now it's compatible with MorphOS!
* Added some input controls
* Some bugfixes and a lot of code added/rewritten

New in this 1.5 version (20-Dic-2018)
* now rendering engine and resulting computation time is separated from printing
text routine on console window

New in 1.4 version (03-Nov-2018):
* One executable for both Altivec and non Altivec routines, so no more crashes
if you run the wrong exe!
* Now you can choose the number of iterations.
* Elaboration time is printed on screen for speedtest purpose for bot Altivec
and non Altivec calculations.
* Added a new charset to draw the Mandelbrot set.
