# CIRCLE_ARC_GRID Compute Grid Points Along a Circular Arc

CIRCLE_ARC_GRID is a C library which calculates a grid of points along a circle or circular arc in 2D.

### Languages:

CIRCLE_ARC_GRID is available in a C version and a C++ version and a FORTRAN77 version and a FORTRAN90 version and a MATLAB version and a Python version.

### Examples and Tests:

ARC is a set of 10 equally spaced points from 0 to 90 degrees, on a circle of radius 2 centered at (5,5).

PENTAGON is a set of 6(!) equally spaced points from 0 to 360 degrees. This is the easiest way to get a pentagon, but you should really edit the file and remove the last point, since it repeats the first one. The alternative is to specify that the angles range from 0 to 288 degrees!

### List of Routines:

• CIRCLE_ARC_GRID computes grid points along a circular arc.
• R82VEC_PRINT_PART prints "part" of an R82VEC.
• R8MAT_WRITE writes an R8MAT file.
• TIMESTAMP prints the current YMDHMS date as a time stamp.
