Line capsHow an ending of a line appears when printed. The picture to the right, are examples of the butt, rounded, and square line caps. As can be seen in this illustration, the butt line cap draws the line and ends it exactly where first ended. Rounded creates a half round edge on each side of the line. Finally, the square line cap is similar to the butt and adds the square ending to the line.
