generate 2-D plot object for a sector of a disk or annulus
sector([x, y], r, a..b, options)
sector([x, y], r1..r2, a..b, options)
center of the sector
radius of the sector
starting and finishing radius of an annular sector
starting angle in radians
finishing angle in radians
(optional) equations of the form option=value. For a complete list, see plot/options.
The sector command creates a two-dimensional plot data object, which when displayed is a sector of the disk of radius r and centered at [x,y]. The sector starts at radian angle a and ends at radian angle b.
If the radius is given as a range r1..r2, the sector of an annulus of inside radius r1 and outside radius r2 is created.
The plot data object produced by the sector command can be used in a PLOT 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 and plot/options.

The plottools[sector] command was introduced in Maple 16.
