Abstract

Vector width for a character to be displayed may be defined by specifying the radius of a circle. The character is drawn starting at the center of the circle. It is then redrawn from origins on the circumference of the circle. Successive origins are less than the width of the display beam apart from each other around the circle. This will give uniform vector width for the entire character- outside corners will be rounded, inside corners will be sharp.
