That's pretty weird...

Those two programs actually produce different results in QB itself. I ran both, the differences were slight but noticeable. I ran only the first one through FB 0.14, it drew a bunch of circles onscreen. I couldn't test it in BSDBASIC since it doesn't support DRAW (and never will). I don't know how well it would work in other BASIC compilers/interpreters either. Have you tried it in PowerBasic 3.5? I'll give it a run through GW-BASIC when I get my VM up and running again.

DRAW uses a pretty nifty (and somewhat complex with all of its calculations) metalanguage, it's not surprising that it's difficult to replicate correctly.
