- Synopsis
**ELLIPSE2**`inline.semiaxis`

`crosswise.semiaxis`

- Description
Draws an ellipse as if the turtle moved clockwise in an ellipse. The size and shape of the ellipse are determined by the

and`inline.semiaxis`

inputs. The`crosswise.semiaxis`

input is the distance from the center-point of the ellipse to the ellipse's edge in the direction which the turtle is currently heading. The`inline.semiaxis`

input is the distance from the center-point of the ellipse to the ellipse's edge in the direction perpendicular to the turtle's current heading.`crosswise.semiaxis`

The ellipse is drawn tangent to the turtle's current position and heading. This tangent point is at the extreme of the ellipse's crosswise axis and the whole ellipse appears to the turtle's right.

Note that the

and`inline.semiaxis`

inputs are given in the reverse order as the inputs to the ELLIPSE command.`crosswise.semiaxis`
