##### Join Vertices in a Network

Join the specified vertices in a linear network, creating a new network.

Keywords
manip, spatial
##### Usage
joinVertices(L, from, to)
##### Arguments
L

A linear network (object of class "linnet") or point pattern on a linear network (object of class "lpp").

from,to

Integers, or integer vectors of equal length, specifying the vertices which should be joined. Alternatively from can be a 2-column matrix of integers and to is missing or NULL.

##### Details

Vertices of the network are numbered by their order of appearance in the point pattern vertices(L).

If from and to are single integers, then the pair of vertices numbered from and to will be joined to make a new segment of the network. If from and to are vectors of integers, then vertex from[i] will be joined to vertex to[i] for each i = 1,2,...

If L is a network (class "linnet"), the result is another network, created by adding new segments. If L is a point pattern on a network (class "lpp"), the result is another point pattern object, created by adding new segments to the underlying network, and retaining the points.

In the resulting object, the new line segments are appended to the existing list of line segments.

##### Value

A linear network (object of class "linnet") or point pattern on a linear network (object of class "lpp").
