Generates a straight line at an angle with a line.
Number of the line to be hit (touched by the end of the new
line). If negative, assume
below) is the second keypoint of the line instead of the first. If
P, graphical picking is enabled and all remaining command fields are ignored
(valid only in the GUI).
Keypoint at which generated line must end.
Angle of intersection of generated line
tangent to line
If 0 (default), the generated line is tangent to
end P1; if 90, the generated line is perpendicular to
If 180, the generated line is tangent to NL1 toward end P2.

LOCAT can range from
0 to 1. If
LOCAT is blank, the point will be located

it is recommended that
LOCAT be input, even if
it is 0.
The program uses an iterative procedure to position
The procedure is not exact, with the result that the actual value of
