Arrowhead(x0, y0, angle = 0, arr.length = 0.4, 
          arr.width = arr.length/2, arr.adj = 0.5, 
          arr.type = "curved", lcol = "black", lty = 1, 
          arr.col = lcol, arr.lwd = 2, npoint = 5)

Arguments

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 arr.type = "curved": number of points to draw the curve; increase for smoother arrowheads

Details

x0, y0, angle, arr.length, arr.width, lcol, lty and arr.col can be a vector, of the same length.

The type of the arrowhead is set with arr.type which can take the values:
