I don't have the context in which you would apply these algorithms. Do you mean this (http://escience.anu.edu.au/lecture/cg/Circle/symmetry4.en.html) and this (http://escience.anu.edu.au/lecture/cg/Circle/symmetry8.en.html)?

This is just an application of the circle equation (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Circle#Analytic_results) optimized to reduce the number of loop passes. Why would anyone want to give such a simple algorithm a unique name?

when i take the code .. and compile it of the this (4 way symmetry)
it gives error cuz simply ill need a class called color and i don't know how to do it .. so plz :) can u implement the code for me .. if u have the time bro

My advice here is replace the Color c parameter with GLfloat color[4]. Then inside the circleSym4 and circleSym8 function, call simply glColor4fv(color); before your glVertex call and you don't need a Color class :) .

My advice is to learn C. You wouldn't need to ask anyone to write code for you then.
