Hello,

Please do not hijack the discussion at hand... the circle comments were completely different than the triangle. It's just not fair to the thread starter.

>how to print a circle of asterisks ...
By the very nature of character based output, a circle is impossible. If the radius is large enough, you can come up with something that's not a diamond or a square trying in vain to be a circle, but that radius would have to be at least 6 or 7 characters (aka. a pretty big circle).

Hi,

I thought I would add too that you will need a mono-spaced font in order for the ASCII art to appear legit. If you have a proportional font in there, it could cause alignment issues. That is the main reason we want to see CODE tags on the code pasted here at DW.... it forces a mono-space font for alignment.
