Could not think of an easy way using the GIMP.

Actually, the only "more or less" easy way I could think off is using
a graphic turtle I am making in GIMP-Python.

Since that would be complicated I made an extra-gimp solution for you.
An Postscript Snippet.

Just paste the following postscript code in a plain text file, which name ends in .ps , edit the number of rays to the desired one,
and them just open it as an image in the GIMP.

Enjoy it!

This should be easy, but I just can't think how to do it.

All I want to create is a radial burst.  Sharp black and white lines
evenly spaced emanating from the center.

Exactly like the old Japanese flag but without the circle in the middle.
See here:

I've been wracking my brains for the last several hours, and digging
through the plug-ings, but I can't come up with anything.  It seems like
it'd be so easy...

Any help would be much obliged!
