What is Diatom?

Diatom is a simple B&W graph plotting program based on Fourier Transform using an algorithm by Brian McGhie which produces nice "flower" type of graphs/shapes.  Output can be printed out on a printer or a HP plotter.  You can save and open script files to redraw the same formulas.  It's quite nice, you can set it to auto and every couple seconds it redraws another "flower" graph.
