Language Pcl LJ1885


     When plotting circles you have two parameters that you
     can set. The first is the radius of the circle, the
     second is the chord angle. The chord angle default if 5
     degrees, and the smaller the number the smoother the
     curve. This example shows the differences in appearance
     between chord angles on circles.  For more information

                                   (black). Even though
                                   there is no physical pen,
                                   the SP command must be
                                   used to enable printing.
