The StdArc procedure is QuickDraw's standard low-level routine for drawing an arc or a wedge.

PROCEDURE StdArc (verb:\xDDGrafVerb; r:\xDDRect; 
One of the following actions to perform, as defined for the GrafVerb data type:
           GrafVerb = (frame, paint, erase, invert, fill);
The rectangle to contain the arc.

The beginning angle.
The ending angle.
Using the action specified in the verb parameter, the StdArc procedure draws an arc or wedge of the oval that fits inside the rectangle specified in the r parameter. The arc or wedge is bounded by the radii specified in the startAngle and arcAngle parameters. (The startAngle and arcAngle parameters are illustrated in Figure 3-20 on page 3-68.)

The StdArc procedure may move or purge memory blocks in the application heap. Your application should not call this procedure at interrupt time.
