Circle.BI Include file or SUB to use when using PAINT with pie charts or arc slices:

'CIRCLE.BI '** '** QB64 replacement CIRCLE command. '** '** The CIRCLE command in QB64 has a few issues: '** '** - radian end points are not calculate properly when creating arcs '** - center line to radian end points do not close properly due to previous bug listed '** '** This circle command replacement works very similiarly to the native CIRCLE command: '** '** SYNTAX: CIRCLES x%, y%, radius!, color~&, start_radian!, end_radian!, aspect_ratio! '** '** x% - center X coordinate of circle '** y% - center Y coordinate of circle '** radius! - the radius of the circle '** color~& - the circle's color '** start_radian! - the radian on circle curcunference to begin drawing at '** end_radian! - the radian on circle circumference to end drawing at '** aspect_ratio! - the aspect ratio of the circle '** '** NOTE: unlike the native CIRCLE command, all arguments MUST be supplied. For example, '** with the native command this will draw a perfect circle with the default color, '** start radian, end radian and aspect ratio: '** '** CIRCLE (319, 239), 100 '** '** To do the same thing with this replacement command you must supply everything: '** '** CIRCLES 319, 239, 100, _RGB32(255, 255, 255), 0, 0, 0 '** '** ACKNOWLEGEMENTS: The FOR/NEXT step formula was was written by Codeguy for Unseen '** Machine's Visual library EllipseXS command. Specifically: '** MinStep! = 1 / (2 * 3.1415926535 * Radius!) '** '** '** Includes performance tweaks made by SMcNeill on 02/02/13 - specifically removing a few redundant * -1 '** statements and converting the FOR/NEXT loop to a DO loop for a ~3% increase in performance. '** '** Corrected bug in which variables being passed in were being modified and passed back - 02/02/13 '** SUB CIRCLES (cx%, cy%, r!, c~&, s!, e!, a!) DIM s%, e%, nx%, ny%, xr!, yr!, st!, en!, asp!
