Generates 3D fractals

Quat generates 3d fractal objects. These objects are Julia sets using quaternions. The package can calculate usual images and stereo pair images for real 3d views, and includes a user-specified true color palette for flexible coloring, 5 iteration formulas, and intersection planes so users can cut open a 3D fractal to see its interior. The program calculates fractals in PNG image format using 24bit true color. There is also a text mode version for batch calculation.
