MAppleT and Stocatree documentation

Module description


This package contains the original C++ code of MAppleT, which is not maintained anymore. A new implementation has been written in Python to be used within OpenAlea framework. This python implementation is called Stocatree and provides a LSystem (similar but not identical to MAppleT) that can be used with LPy

See the user guide and reference guide for more information about installation and usage.
