I'll improve the code over weekend. By now the area is scanned
from left to right to find all pixels where the function changes
its value from plus to minus or vice versa. I'll add an additional
scan from top to bottom to close all those wholes in the function.
Also the value for stepFactor should then be unimportant, which
decreases the run time.
However, the jigsaw pattern cannot be omiited for great values
of linewidth. The implicit function is plotted as dots and not as a
continous line.
