This Demonstration produces dragon curves based on up to five angles. With "depth" set to 1, the "angle" slider controls the number of times the first iteration bends; sliders "a" through "e" control the angles at which it bends. The "depth" slider controls which iteration of the curve is displayed; at each iteration every straight line is replaced by a copy of the previous iteration.
