### Description

`polygon`

draws the polygons whose vertices are
given in `x`

and `y`

.

### Arguments

`x,y` |
vectors containing the coordinates of the vertices
of the polygon. |

`density` |
density of fill pattern. *NOT YET* implemented. |

`angle` |
angle of fill pattern. *NOT YET* implemented. |

`border` |
the color to draw the border. Defaults to

### Examples

n <- 100
xx <- c(0:n, n:0)
yy <- c(c(0,cumsum(rnorm(n))), rev(c(0,cumsum(rnorm(n)))))
plot (xx, yy, type="n", xlab="Time", ylab="Distance")
polygon(xx, yy, col="gray", border = "red")
