Hallo,
How to construct a circular arc if start(p1) and end points(p2) of the arc are given and the arc should pass thru another point p3 (means...whose distance to center is the radius of the arc)

Thanks..

  I checked out that 12th article I wrote 23 Nov. 2010 in the thread

 http://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/newsreader/view_thread/297070

It still draws the circular arc properly. However the numbering is different from those you called for. That one draws an arc from p1 = (x1,y1) through p2 = (x2,y2) and on around to p3 = (x3,y3), whereas you are asking to start at p1 = (x1,y1), pass through p3 = (x3,y3) and on around to p2 = (x2,y2). You'll have to transpose the two points p2 = (x2,y2) and p3 (x3,y3) in your code to make it work right for you.
