    Default Find a "circle" within a matrix

    Hi there.

    My problem is, that I want to find a "circle" within a matrix, but I just cant wrap my head around it at the moment. It seems like I am having a blockade in my head.
    Lets assume we have a big matrix filled with integer numbers, like this:
         0) 1) 2) 3) 4) 5) 6) 7)
    0) [ 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0 ]
    1) [ 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0 ]
    2) [ 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0 ]
    3) [ 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0 ]
    4) [ 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0 ]
    5) [ 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0 ]
    6) [ 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0 ]
    And I specify one of the cells of the matrix and the size of the circle:
    matrix.doCircle(column = 3, row = 4, radius = 2.5);
    The resulting matrix should look like this:
         0) 1) 2) 3) 4) 5) 6) 7)
    0) [ 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0 ]
    1) [ 0, 0, 0, 1, 1, 1, 0, 0 ]
    2) [ 0, 0, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 0 ]
    3) [ 0, 0, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 0 ]
    4) [ 0, 0, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 0 ]
    5) [ 0, 0, 0, 1, 1, 1, 0, 0 ]
    6) [ 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0 ]
    So a circle centered at (3, 4) with the radius 2.5 has been filled with 1's in that matrix.
    The circle should be as smooth as possible, and the matrices and radii could get very big.

    Does anybody know a good algorithm which would solve this problem in a somewhat effective way?

    Thank you very much.

    Hi Cornix

    Give this a view - I had quite a long look at various information
    and found this to be the most helpful.

    Midpoint circle algorithm - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The sample code they give is written in C#, but is very much like Java syntax
    as I am sure you know. If it is not quite what you are after, the programming
    site "stack overflow" has a few snippets of this type of algorithm too.
