LindenmayeR: Functions to Explore L-Systems (Lindenmayer Systems)

L-systems or Lindenmayer systems are parallel rewriting systems which can be used to simulate biological forms and certain kinds of fractals. Briefly, in an L-system a series of symbols in a string are replaced iteratively according to rules to give a more complex string. Eventually, the symbols are translated into turtle graphics for plotting. Wikipedia has a very good introduction: This package provides basic functions for exploring L-systems.
