NAME

DISTANCE - Measure the distance between two points  

SYNOPSIS

DIS {<xy1> <xy2>} ... EOC  

DESCRIPTION

After entering the first point <xy1> a rubber-banded right-angled triangle is animated on the screen between <xy1> and the current mouse location. The coordinates of both points and the delta_x, delta_y, and total distance is displayed.

After entering the final point <xy2> a summary is printed to the screen of the form:

   xy1=(-600,1100) xy2=(2800,3900) dx=3400, dy=2800, dxy=4404.54 theta=39.4725 (deg.)

giving the location of each coordinate, the delta_x, delta_y, delta_xy and the angle of the line xy1:xy2 with respect to horizontal in degrees.

Pairs of points may be entered indefinitely until receipt of a final EOC or the entry of another command name.
