Polyline( <List of Points> )
Creates an open polygonal chain (i.e. a connected series of segments) having the initial vertex in the first point of the list, and the final vertex in the last point of the list.
Note: The polygonal chain length is displayed in the Menu view algebra.svg Algebra View.
Polyline( <Point>, ..., <Point> )
Creates an open polygonal chain (i.e. a connected series of segments) having the initial vertex in the first entered point, and the final vertex in the last entered point.
Notes:
  • The polygonal chain length is displayed in the Menu view algebra.svg Algebra View.
  • It is also possible to create a discontinuous polygonal:
Example: Polyline((1, 3), (4, 3), (?,?), (6, 2), (4, -2), (2, -2)) yields the value 9.47 in Menu view algebra.svg Algebra View, and the corresponding polygonal in Menu view graphics.svg Graphics View.
