and here the example for writing upright letters on a circle


  \global\pst at cntm=0
  \expandafter\placeChar at i#1;}
\def\placeChar at i#1#2;{%
  \uput[\the\pst at cntm](5;\the\pst at cntm){\Huge#1}%
  \global\advance\pst at cntm by 10
  \ifx\relax#2\relax\else\expandafter\placeChar at i#2;\fi%

\placeChar{123AXYZ some more text on a circle}
