adds one or more arrowheads to a plot; shape is either curved, a triangle, a circle or ellipse.

1 2 3 4 |

`x0 ` |
x-coordinates of points at which to draw arrowhead; either one value or a vector. |

`y0 ` |
y-coordinates of points at which to draw arrowhead; either one value or a vector. |

`angle ` |
angle of arrowhead (anti-clockwise, relative to x-axis), in degrees [0,360]; either one value or a vector. |

`arr.length ` |
approximate length of arrowhead, in cm; either one value or a vector. |

`arr.width ` |
approximate width of arrowhead, in cm; either one value or a vector. |

`arr.adj ` |
0,0.5,1 specifying the adjustment of the arrowhead. |

`arr.type ` |
type of arrowhead to draw, one of "curved","triangle","circle","ellipse". |

`lcol ` |
line color specifications; either one value or a vector. |

`lty ` |
line type specifications; either one value or a vector. |

`arr.col ` |
color of arrowhead; either one value or a vector. |

`arr.lwd ` |
line width of arrowhead. |

`npoint ` |
only if |

arguments passed to the |

`x0`

, `y0`

, `angle`

, `arr.length`

, `arr.width`

,
`lcol`

, `lty`

and `arr.col`

can be a vector,
of the same length.

if

`arr.adj`

= 0.5, then the centre of the arrowhead is at the point at which it is drawn.-
`arr.adj`

= 1 causes the tip of the arrowhead to touch the point. -
`arr.adj`

= 0 causes the base of the arrowhead to touch the point.

The type of the arrowhead is set with `arr.type`

which can take
the values:

"triangle": uses filled triangle

"curved" : draws arrowhead with curved edges

"circle" : draws circular head (where arr.width=arr.length)

"ellipse" : draws ellipsoid head
