[result]=circle(r,req)
function [result]=circle(r,req)
%CIRCLE Circle shape routine.
%   CIRCLE(RADIUS, REQUEST) 
%
%   Shape described: Circle.
%
%   Datum location: Center.
%
%   Input arguments:
%     radius: Radius of circle.
%
%   Requests: (Must be in single quotes)
%     'area':  Area of the shape.
%     'circ':  Circumference of shape.
%     'Ix':    Area moment of inertia about the neutral x axis.
%     'Iy':    Area moment of inertia about the neutral y axis.
%     'centX': Distance from datum to centroid in the x direction.
%     'centY': Distance from datum to centroid in the y direction.
%     'J':     Polar moment of inertia.
%     'comp':  All of the above in a 1x6 matrix.
%     'draw':  Show the shape graphically.
