%DRAWELLIPSEARC Draw an ellipse arc on the current axis
%
%   drawEllipseArc(ARC) 
%   draw ellipse arc specified by ARC. ARC has the format:
%     ARC = [XC YC A B THETA T1 T2]
%   or:
%     ARC = [XC YC A B T1 T2] (isothetic ellipse)
%   with center (XC, YC), main axis of half-length A, second axis of
%   half-length B, and ellipse arc running from t1 to t2 (both in degrees,
%   in Counter-Clockwise orientation).
%
%   Parameters can also be arrays. In this case, all arrays are suposed to
%   have the same size...
%
%   drawEllipseArc(..., NAME, VALUE)
%   Specifies one or more parameters name-value pairs, as in the plot
%   function.
%
%   drawEllipseArc(AX, ...)
%   Sepcifies the handle of theaxis to draw on.
%
%   H = drawEllipseArc(...)
%   Returns handle(s) of the created graphic objects.
%
%   Example
%     % draw an ellipse arc: center = [10 20], radii = 50 and 30, theta = 45
%     arc = [10 20 50 30 45 -90 270];
%     figure;
%     axis([-50 100 -50 100]); axis equal;
%     hold on
%     drawEllipseArc(arc, 'color', 'r')
%
%     % draw another ellipse arc, between angles -60 and 70
%     arc = [10 20 50 30 45 -60 (60+70)];
%     figure;
%     axis([-50 100 -50 100]); axis equal;
%     hold on
%     drawEllipseArc(arc, 'LineWidth', 2);
%     ray1 = createRay([10 20], deg2rad(-60+45));
%     drawRay(ray1)
%     ray2 = createRay([10 20], deg2rad(70+45));
%     drawRay(ray2)
