**Syntax**

**Description**

A feather plot displays vectors emanating from equally spaced points along a horizontal axis. You express the vector components relative to the origin of the respective vector.

```
feather(U,V)
```

displays the vectors specified by `U`

and `V`

, where `U`

contains the *x* components as relative coordinates, and `V`

contains the *y* components as relative coordinates.

```
feather(Z)
```

displays the vectors specified by the complex numbers in `Z`

. This is equivalent to `feather(real(Z),imag(Z))`

.

`feather(...,`

draws a feather plot using the line type, marker symbol, and color specified by `LineSpec`

)
`LineSpec`

.

**Examples**

Create a feather plot showing the direction of `theta`

.
