Ha, ha, ha; they are coming to take me away as I am replying to my own 
post yet again.

And this does seem a bit bonkers;

onmouseUp
     put0 intoKKK
     put1 intoJJJ
repeatuntil KKK > 6.3
             put((150 + (100 * (COS(KKK)))) div 1) intoCKKK
             put((150 + (100 * (SIN(KKK)))) div 1)intoSKKK
             putCKKK & ", " & SKKK intoline JJJ offld "POINTZ"
             add0.01 toKKK
             add1 toJJJ
         endrepeat
endmouseUp

The idea of doing 'div 1' is . . . .

Richmond.
