  • Last Updated : 19 Jun, 2020

segment() function in R Language is used to draw a line segment between to particular points.

Syntax: segments(x0, y0, x1, y1)

Parameters:
x, y: coordinates to draw a line segment between provided points.

Returns: a line segment between given points

Example 1: To draw a single line segment

# Create empty example plot
plot(0, 0, col = "white", xlab = "", ylab = "")
  
# Draw one line
segments(x0 = - 1, y0 = - 0.5, x1 = 0.5, y1 = 0, col = "darkgreen"

chevron_right


Output:
line-segment

Here, x0 & y0 are starting points of the line segment and x1 & y1 are ending points of line segment .

Example 2: Modifying  color, thickness & line type

         # Color of line
         col = "darkgreen",      
           
         # Thickness of line
         lwd = 5,                
           
         # Line type
         lty = "dotted")
