plottools[line] - generate 2-D or 3-D plot object for a line segment

Calling Sequence

line(a, b, options)


a, b


end points of the line segment



(optional) equations of the form option=value. For a complete list, see plot/options and plot3d/options.



The line command creates a plot data object, which when displayed is a line segment starting at point a and ending at point b. The line is two- or three-dimensional depending on whether a is a list of two or three values, respectively.


The plot data object produced by the line command can be used in a PLOT or PLOT3D data structure, or displayed using the plots[display] command.


Remaining arguments are interpreted as options, which are specified as equations of the form option = value.  For more information, see plottools, plot/options and plot3d/options.
