Fractals can be represented by means of L-systems (Development Grammars), together with a graphic interpretation. Two families of graphic interpretations have been used: turtle graphics and vector graphics. This paper describes an APL2/PC system able to draw fractals represented by L-systems, with both graphic interpretations. A theorem has been proved on the equivalence conditions for both interpretations. Another point shown is the fact that supposed deficiencies in L-systems that have prompted proposals of extensions are really deficiencies in the graphic translation scheme.
