Description Draws an arc in the display window. Arcs are drawn along the outer edge of an ellipse defined by the x, y, width and height parameters. The origin or the arc's ellipse may be changed with the ellipseMode() function. The start and stop parameters specify the angles at which to draw the arc.
arc(x, y, width, height, start, stop)
x int or float: x-coordinate of the arc's ellipse
y int or float: y-coordinate of the arc's ellipse
width int or float: width of the arc's ellipse
height int or float: height of the arc's ellipse
start int or float: angle to start the arc, specified in radians
stop int or float: angle to stop the arc, specified in radians
Returns None
