generate 2-D plot object for an elliptic arc
ellipticArc(c, a, b, r, opts)
center of the ellipticArc
semi-major axis of the elliptic arc
semi-minor axis of the elliptic arc
range of the arc in radians
(optional) equations of the form option=value
Any applicable 2-D plot option in plot/options can also be given.
filled : truefalse
Specifies whether to fill the inside of the arc. The default is false.
rotate = real
Specifies that ellipse should be be rotated by the specified angle (in radians) from the standard position with the major axis parallel to the x-axis. The default is 0.
super = positive real, list of two positive reals, or the value true
Specifies that a (generalized) superelliptic arc should be created.
See plottools[ellipse] for more details on generalized superellipses.
The ellipticArc command creates a two-dimensional plot data object, which when displayed is an elliptic arc of an ellipse centered at c with semi-major axis a and semi-minor axis b. The arc ranges in r.
The plot data object produced by the ellipticArc command can be used in a PLOT data structure, or displayed using the plots[display] command.
Remaining arguments are interpreted as options, which are specified as equations of the form option = value. For more information, see plottools and plot/options.

The super option was introduced in Maple 2019.
