polygon_coords: Makes coordinates for a regualr polygon

Description

Generates an n x 2 matrix containing x and y coordinates between 1 and 0 for the points of a regular polygon.

Usage

1
polygon_coords(n = 5, x = 0, y = 0, radius = 1, angle = 0)

Arguments

n

(numeric of length 1) The number of nodes in the polygon.

x

(numeric of length 1) x coordinate of center

y

(numeric of length 1) y coordinate of center

radius

(numeric of length 1) The diameter of the circle.

angle

(numeric of length 1) Angle to rotate points around the center of the circle.
