How can I plot circles, same radius and different centers, all in one graph. I used the following command to draw +,o,diamond: plot (x,y,'ro',u,v,'gd',A,B,'b+'); where x,y,u,v,A,B are all row vectors. And I want to add circles to that plot where the o will be the center.

Here's a function to draw circles:

function circle(x,y,r)
%x and y are the coordinates of the center of the circle
%r is the radius of the circle
%0.01 is the angle step, bigger values will draw the circle faster but
%you might notice imperfections (not very smooth)

If you want to add circles you must insert the command

hold on

before the circles being added.
