There are many ways to view the basins of attraction for Newton's method for complex polynomials. In the paper a program to perform this task is presented. It determines if the Newton's method is converging from any point in a rectangular domain in R  R, and computes the number of iterations necessary to attempt a root. The colors/number of iterations/roots and colors/roots diagrams are generated.
