circBar(Y, lim, width, plot_spokes) generates a bar graph on polar coordinate system, printing one bar for each value of the numeric array Y. The progress of each bar is set with respect to the angular limit lim of the graph.
If Y contains only one element, then some text is added in the center of the circle:
circBar(68, 125, 0.9, false) generates a one bar chart and prints '68 of 125'
circBar(0.41, 1, 0.9, false) generates a one bar chart and prints '41%'
Run demo.m to see these and other examples.
