## S3 method for class 'ashape'
plot(x, add = FALSE, wlines = c("none", "both", "del", "vor"),
	wpoints = TRUE, number = FALSE, col = NULL, 
	xlim = NULL, ylim = NULL, lwd = NULL, ...)

Arguments

x

Object of class "ashape".

add

Logical, if TRUE add to a current plot.

wlines

"Which lines?". I.e. should the Delaunay triangulation be plotted (wlines='del'), should the Voronoi diagram be plotted (wlines='vor'), should both be plotted (wlines='both'), or none (wlines='none', the default)?

wpoints

Logical, indicates if sample points should be plotted.

number

Logical, defaulting to FALSE; if TRUE then the points plotted will be labelled with their index numbers.

col

The colour numbers for plotting the α-shape, data points, Delaunay triangulation, Voronoi diagram, and the point numbers, in that order; defaults to c(1,1,1,1,1). If fewer than five numbers are given, they are recycled. (If more than five numbers are given, the redundant ones are ignored.)

xlim

The limits on the x-axis.

ylim

The limits on the y-axis.

lwd

The line widths for plotting the tesselations and the α-shape; defaults to c(1,2).

...

Arguments to be passed to methods, such as graphical parameters (see par).
