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 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.
Note: The polygonal chain length is displayed in the Algebra View.


Note:
  • It is possible, with version > 4, to create a discontinuous PolyLine.
Example: PolyLine[ (1, 3), (4, 3), (?,?), (6, 2), (4, -2), (2, -2)] yields f = 9.47 .
