Description

Draw different kinds of brackets between pairs of points.

Usage

brackets(x1, y1, x2, y2, h = NULL,  ticks = 0.5, curvature = 0.5, type = 1,
col = 1, lwd = 1, lty = 1, xpd = FALSE)

Arguments

x1, y1

coordinates of points from which to draw.

x2, y2

coordinates of points to which to draw.

h

brackets height (with ticks), given in euclidean distance. For horizontal brackets it is the height in y-units, for vertical brackets it is the width in x-units. generally it is the euclidean distance: sqrt(x^2+y^2).

ticks

A single value or a vector of values in (0, 1), gives the relative position of the ticks on the bracket. Use NA or NULL to make a bracket without ticks. Negative values resulting in ticks inside of brackets. Values 0 or 1, flip the starting or end edges of the brackets.

curvature

A value in [0, 1], gives the amount of space on the bracket that is used for the curve, it getting automatically smaller if many ticks are specified or the tick is near the edge.

type

A value in: 1 to 5 for different brackets forms, see example.

  • 1: braces

  • 2: braces 2

  • 3: stump brackets

  • 4: square brackets

  • 5: parentheses

col

color code or name of color.

lwd

line width

lty

line type

xpd

A logical value. If FALSE, all plotting is clipped to the plot region, if TRUE, all plotting is clipped to the figure region.
