Draw Line Segments

Description

These functions create and draw line segments.

Usage

grid.segments(x0 = unit(0, "npc"), y0 = unit(0, "npc"),
              x1 = unit(1, "npc"), y1 = unit(1, "npc"),
              default.units = "npc", 
              arrow = NULL,
              name = NULL, gp = gpar(), draw = TRUE, vp = NULL)
segmentsGrob(x0 = unit(0, "npc"), y0 = unit(0, "npc"),
              x1 = unit(1, "npc"), y1 = unit(1, "npc"),
              default.units = "npc", 
              arrow = NULL, name = NULL, gp = gpar(), vp = NULL)

Arguments

x0 Numeric indicating the starting x-values of the line segments.
y0 Numeric indicating the starting y-values of the line segments.
x1 Numeric indicating the stopping x-values of the line segments.
y1 Numeric indicating the stopping y-values of the line segments.
default.units A string.
arrow A list describing arrow heads to place at either end of the line segments, as produced by the arrow function.
name A character identifier.
gp An object of class gpar.
draw A logical value indicating whether graphics output should be produced.
vp A Grid viewport object (or NULL)

Details

Both functions create a segments grob (a graphical object describing segments), but only grid.segments draws the segments (and then only if draw is TRUE).

Value

A segments grob. grid.segments returns the value invisibly.
