Circle Reference

Class Circle is defined in circles.web. It is derived from Ellipse, using public derivation.

Since Circle is just a special kind of Ellipse, there is often no need to define special functions for Circles.

Currently, Circle inherits the transformation functions and operator*=(const Transform&) from Ellipse. Consequently, the data member radius, described below, is not recalculated, when transformations are performed on a Circle. I plan to change this soon!
