Radar sweep effect

The project I’m working on requires a radar. Getting the radar blip to
plot at the correct bearing and range wasn’t too difficult, but
simulating the radar sweep effect (like the WWII movies) has me stuck.
Anyone have any ideas on how to do this?

check out the source to xscreensaver – there’s a radar module in that.On Fri, May 31, 2002 at 10:11:09AM -0500, Rick McDaniel wrote:
