iSwirlique is an interactive program for the Macintosh OS X system. iSwirlique draws and animates Kleinian limit sets, using the "depth-first search" algorithm and two-generator group "recipes", as illustrated in the book Indra's Pearls, (c) 2002 Cambridge University Press.  iSwirlique also exports Kleinian sets in 3D format for use in programs like Bryce and POV_Ray.
