# ps_arc

## Description

bool**ps_arc**( resource psdoc, float x, float y, float radius, float alpha, float beta )

Draws a portion of a circle with at middle point at
(`x`

, `y`

). The arc starts at an
angle of `alpha`

and ends at an angle of
`beta`

. It is drawn counterclockwise (use
**ps_arcn()** to draw clockwise). The subpath added
to the current path starts on the arc at angle `alpha`

and ends on the arc at angle `beta`

.

## Parameters

`psdoc`

Resource identifier of the postscript file as returned by

**ps_new()**.`x`

The x-coordinate of the circle's middle point.

`y`

The y-coordinate of the circle's middle point.

`radius`

The radius of the circle

`alpha`

The start angle given in degrees.

`beta`

The end angle given in degrees.
