Hello! I really enjoy working in pico-8, and I plan to use Raspberry Pi GPIO support to do some stuff with simple machines. I want to use an external process to handle stuff Pico-8 can't, like image recognition. My current plan is to rewrite a byte in the .p8 file and then reload that byte in the game periodically. Is there a better way to go about doing this? Thanks!
UPDATE: I had thought that Pico-8 might completely reserve access to the GPIO pins it's using, but this is not the case! After experimenting I've discovered that I can see changes made via another process within Pico-8. This way I can communicate with another process using the same pins.

L-System for generating fractal structures like the Dragon Curve. Uses map, gfx_props, song
and sfx memory. No reason it couldn't be extended into user data. It generates the 11th iteration of a dragon curve, but has commented out code to generate a moore curve. Since it overflows into song data, you can hear music generated by the curve. Takes a few seconds to generate before it starts drawing.
