# draw.radial.line: Draw a radial line In plotrix/plotrix: Various Plotting Functions

## Description

Draws a line radiating from a specified center, optionally expanding the line width as a function of distance from center.

## Usage

 ```1 2``` ``` draw.radial.line(start, end, center=c(0, 0), angle=0, deg=NA, expand=FALSE, col=NA, lwd=NA, ...) ```

## Arguments

 `start` Distance from center of circular area to start of line in x/y user units. `end` Distance from center of circular area to end of line in x/y user units. `center` The center of the circular area in x/y user units. `angle` The angular position of the line in radians. `deg` The angular position of the line in degrees (takes precedence if not NA). `expand` TRUE to expand line width in proportion to distance from center. `col` The color of the line, NA for par("col"). `lwd` The width of the line in device-specific units, NA for par("lwd"). `...` Arguments passed to 'lines' (expand=FALSE) or 'polygon' (expand=TRUE).

## Details

If the user passes a value for 'deg', this overrides any value passed to 'angle'.

If 'expand' is FALSE, the line width is constant (as specified by par("lwd").

If 'expand' is TRUE, the line width is equal to the lwd value at distance 'end' and contracts as it moves towards 'start'. When expand is 'TRUE', lty is ignored.
