Thank you very much Jim for you help!!Your help was my need!! I have create this function to draw a polygon with a circular side

DrawPortion<-function(init,finish,length_){

```  	plot(0,xlim=c(-10,10),ylim=c(-10,10),xlab="",ylab="",type="n",axes=TRUE)

border="#ffaaaa",col="#66ee33")
}

}

```

Thank you very much Jim

A Greetings Luismi
