Yes you're right. To complete the outline you have to connect each point to the previous point. Something like this:

$prevdist = 0; foreach $ydist ( 0..$radius ) { # using the formula: # xdist*xdist + ydist*ydist = radius*radius $newxdist = int(sqrt( $radius*$radius - $ydist*$ydist)); # Take advantage of symmetry to plot 4 lines at once # (for circle outline, draw a line from the previous # point to the new one) foreach $xdist ($prevdist..$newxdist) { $circle{$x_center-$xdist}{$y_center-$ydist}++; $circle{$x_center+$xdist}{$y_center-$ydist}++; $circle{$x_center-$xdist}{$y_center+$ydist}++; $circle{$x_center+$xdist}{$y_center+$ydist}++; } $prevdist = $newxdist; }
