    Question Java Graphics Question

    I'm absolutely clueless on how to control arcs in java. Here is some sample code my teacher gave me, would somebody mind explaining what each part of it does?

    g.drawArc(50,250,150,150,90,180);
    g.drawArc(210,250,150,150,45,90);
    g.fillArc(210,280,150,150,45,90);

    The API is your best friend: Graphics (Java Platform SE 6)

    I suggest you read through that, then write a small program that you can play with to see what happens when you change each value.
