### Drawing different shapes with Imagemagick

Posted:

**2019-06-08T18:27:28-07:00**Hello everyone,

I am new to ImageMagick and am working on Rubyplot, an advanced plotting library for Ruby. I am adding ImageMagick as a backend for this library using

I have to create a function which takes x and y coordinate as input and draws the shapes pentagon, hexagon, heptagon, octagon, stars (with the number of sides as 4/5/6/7/8). To do this polyline can be used but that would involve too much geometry as I would have to use points relative to x and y.

Is there any other way of doing this? Please suggest.

Thank you in advance!
