The arrowhead function adds a small arrow marker to the end of a line. It looks like this:

a (number, number) Tuple (x, y) for point a
b (number, number) Tuple (x, y) for point b
length number length of the tick in user units.

Draws an arrowhead on the line ab. The arrow point is at b and points in the direction a to b.
