…to draw on my graphing calculator, but its hardware had very little RAM, and its implementation of BASIC did not support lambdas, so I had to settle for drawing individual sequences, while modulating by hand the values of x and i .

If it looks like this, repeating the iterating function with those particular values for x and i zeroes in on one consistent return value.
If it looks like this, repeating the iterating function with …

Then I heard about K&R C at university and flipped through a copy at the library. I think one of my friends bought a copy, and I was envious because I couldn't afford it at the time.
