He tested it on Gimp-2.6 but i tested it in Gimp-2.8 and it does work.
Make sure and read the README file included in the zip download.(it gives you install instructions)
With the correct formula you could make some pretty cool knotwork with this one. :)

I did have to make the canvas size larger after. The path was too long. :)

I've been waiting for B-and-P to release this one Rod; going to download it shortly and thanks for the heads up. :)

I thought i saw he had some of the designs out there and i was wondering how he created them. This looks like a good one if you can figure out a few formulas. I assume if anyone creates a masterpiece they could share the formula with others. :) :bigthup - I could see saving a big collection of them somewhere.

I asked if B and P would consider adding a save preset or formula functionality.

I noticed that the x and y should be swapped on his formula that he shared. Have to get a mathbook out to concoct some formulas for it though. lol

I did this image with the last formula i tried.
Then did a stroke path then a theirs>pan to Bow, and then a alpha to selection on the pan bow layer and select to path.Then i stroked the path with the vine brush.
Then i did another alpha to selection and stroked with a dark green to bring it out more. :)

The length of the path is determined by the number of points, Rod.

I agree that there should be a Save/Load preset functionality, I just don't know how to do it.

I agree that there should be a database somewhere of formulae with screenshots, maybe start a thread for that purpose here or something.
I think my formula viewer app is perfect for that - users will just play with it, then do PrintScreen when something nice has came out, then post it. The only draw back here is that formulas will have to be manually typed from the image by others.:)

TIP: During development I saved a few formulas inside the script comments. Check them out, they still there. Actually, I'll paste it here for convenience:
            # loops vine
            #X = i*4+sin(i*0.1)*100
            #Y = 200+sin(i*0.05)*100*cos(i*0.1)

            # loops sym
            #X = i*2+(sin(i*0.05)*100)
            #Y = 200+sin(i*0.05)*100*cos(i*0.1)

            #loop chain border
            #X = i*4+sin(i*0.1)*sin(i*0.2)*100
            #Y = 200+sin(i*0.1)*cos(i*0.2)*100

            #X = i*6+sin(i*1.618)*sin(i*1.618)*100
            #Y = 200+cos(i*1.618)*sin(i*1.618)*80+sin(i*88)*200

            #sin(i)*50+sin(i*1.1)*5+i*pi+sin(i)*1.2
            #100+sin(i*1.1)*20+(sin(i)*20)

            #((i*0.8)*4)+(sin(i*0.1)*phi)+(sin(i*0.8)*10)
            #200+(sin(i*0.2)*20)*(sin(i*0.1)*phi)

            #((i*0.4)*4)+(sin(i*0.4)*phi)+(sin(i*0.6)*10)-(sin(i*0.4)*20)
            #100+(sin(i*0.2)*20)*(sin(i*0.2)*phi)

            #nice loops
            #((i*0.5)*5)+(sin(i*0.125)*100)
            #100+(sin(i*0.25)*20)+(cos(i*1)*0.25)
