What the Software does?

As its name imply, it does calculate a Fibonnaci sequence for 2 given number. It display the result regarding one of the 'Display options' :

1. ALL Numbers:           display a standard Fibonnaci sequence.
2. ODD Numbers only:  display only the ODD number in the sequence.
3. EVEN Numbers only: display only the EVEN number in the sequence.

You can Clear, Save and Print the result.

What is a Fibonnaci Sequence?

It is a sequence of number where the rule is: Take the first digit and add it to the second gives you the 3rd digit. From here take the last digit and add it to the previous one to obtain the next digit in the sequence.

Note: the original Fibonnaci sequence starts with the first two digit equal to 1. So 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55 is a Fibonnaci Sequence of 10 numbers (1+1, 1+2, 2+3... 21 + 34).

What is the use of such Sequence?

Fair question, no doubt. I wonder if Fibonnaci himself knew. Any problem that need a sequence following a pattern is the correct answer I guess. That says: Mathematics, Architecture, Engineering, IT, Tree Algorithm, Cryptology, Pattern study and so much more. So where is used the most intensively? Here is the answer: nature. My grand father used to say: 'All the answers are in the nature' and Fibonnaci proved it.

Here is one thought. Perhaps it's not an entirely practical application, but Fibonacci numbers can be used to convert from miles to kilometers and vice versa: Take two consecutive Fibonacci numbers, for example 5 and 8. And you're done converting. There are 8 kilometers in 5 miles. To convert back just read the result from the other end: there are 5 miles in 8 km. Fibonacci numbers have a property that the ratio of two consecutive numbers tends to the Golden ratio as numbers get bigger and bigger. The Golden ratio is a number and it happens to be approximately 1.618. There are 1.609 kilometers in a mile, which is within 0.5% of the Golden ratio.

Let alone all that has been already done with the Fibonnaci sequence... what you will do with it?

Operating System Requirement:

There is a 32 bits and a 64bits version available for download. If you are not sure which one to use you can:

Check your system properties, or just download the 32 bits version.

Installation:

There is no installer provided, it is a portable application.

The download is a zip file and all you need to do is to unzip the contents of it into the folder of your choice.

The files into this archive are:

1. FibSeqMak.exe which is the software itself to generate a Fibonnaci Sequence.
2. BSD3 License.txt which is the license you are required to read BEFORE using the software.
