Draw arrows between pairs of points.

```
arrows(x0, y0, x1 = x0, y1 = y0, length = 0.25, angle = 30,
code = 2, col = par("fg"), lty = par("lty"),
lwd = par("lwd"), …)
```

x0, y0

coordinates of points **from** which to draw.

x1, y1

coordinates of points **to** which to draw. At least
one must the supplied

length

length of the edges of the arrow head (in inches).

angle

angle from the shaft of the arrow to the edge of the arrow head.

code

integer code, determining *kind* of arrows to be
drawn.

col, lty, lwd

graphical parameters, possible vectors.
`NA`

values in `col`

cause the arrow to be omitted.

…

graphical parameters such as `xpd`

and the line
characteristics `lend`

, `ljoin`

and `lmitre`

:
see `par`

.

For each `i`

, an arrow is drawn between the point ```
(x0[i],
y0[i])
```

and the point `(x1[i], y1[i])`

. The coordinate vectors
will be recycled to the length of the longest.

If `code = 1`

an arrowhead is drawn at `(x0[i], y0[i])`

and if
`code = 2`

an arrowhead is drawn at `(x1[i], y1[i])`

. If
`code = 3`

a head is drawn at both ends of the arrow. Unless
`length = 0`

, when no head is drawn.

The graphical parameters `col`

, `lty`

and `lwd`

can be vectors of length greater than one and will be recycled if
necessary.

The direction of a zero-length arrow is indeterminate, and hence so is the direction of the arrowheads. To allow for rounding error, arrowheads are omitted (with a warning) on any arrow of length less than 1/1000 inch.

`segments`

to draw segments.

# NOT RUN { x <- stats::runif(12); y <- stats::rnorm(12) i <- order(x, y); x <- x[i]; y <- y[i] plot(x,y, main = "arrows(.) and segments(.)") ## draw arrows from point to point : s <- seq(length(x)-1) # one shorter than data arrows(x[s], y[s], x[s+1], y[s+1], col = 1:3) s <- s[-length(s)] segments(x[s], y[s], x[s+2], y[s+2], col = "pink") # }
