Detection of lines (line segments) in a grayscale image using gradient-based Hough Transform.

DrawLines_2Ends(lineseg, varargin)
function DrawLines_2Ends(lineseg, varargin)
%Draw line segments, parameterized as (x1, x2, y1, y2), on graph
%  DrawLines_2Ends(lineseg, varargin)
%  A simple function for drawing line segments on graph. Made as an
%  auxiliary tool for function '[...] = Hough_Grd(...)'.
%  INPUT: (lineseg, properties)
%  lineseg:     Parameters (x1, x2, y1, y2) of line segments to draw.
%               Is a Ns-by-4 matrix with each row contains the parameters
%               (x1, x2, y1, y2) that define the two ends of a line
%               segment. The output 'lineseg' from the function
%               '[...] = Hough_Grd(...)' can be put here directly.
%  properties:  (Optional)
%               A string of line drawing properties. Will be transferred
%               to function 'plot' without modification for line drawing.
%  OUTPUT: None
