I include CIRCLE as a standard part of the Unidata McIDAS distribution.

If you do not want to lose the current version of CIRCLE (circle.k), then
you need to save it off before building a new version.  The absolute
easiest way to do this is for sites running the Unidata distribution of
McIDAS is:

<login as 'mcidas'>

<save off the old CIRCLE executable and help files>

cd ~/bin
mv circle.k circleold.k
cd ~/help
mv circle.hlp circleold.hlp

<save off the old CIRCLE source>

cd ~/mcidas7.7/src
mv circle.pgm circle.pgm.old

<build the new CIRCLE executable>

<copy the new circle.pgm source to ~/mcidas7.7/src
make circle.k circle.hlp
ln circle.k ~/bin
ln circle.hlp ~/help

>I am enclosing his new CIRCLE code.

OK.  I will take a quick look.
