Similar to plotting a circle, only plots an arc based on its centre, radius and angle span.

Can this be easily modified for angles in the y-z plane?

very code


It's useful, but it can only plot arcs < 180°, in other words span=[a,b] gives the same arc as span=[b,a]. If you don't want that, add e.g.
if span(2)<span(1)
span(2) = span(2) + 2*pi;
before theta = ...
