Set the turtles' heading towards agents2.

face(turtles, agents2, world, torus = FALSE)

# S4 method for agentMatrix,matrix
face(turtles, agents2, world, torus = FALSE)

Arguments

turtles

AgentMatrix object representing the moving agents.

agents2

Matrix (ncol = 2) with the first column "pxcor" and the second column "pycor" representing the patches coordinates, or

AgentMatrix object representing the moving agents, or

Matrix (ncol = 2) with the first column "x and the second column "y" representing locations coordinates.

world

WorldMatrix or worldArray object.

torus

Logical to determine if the world is wrapped. Default is torus = FALSE.

Value

AgentMatrix representing the turtles with updated headings.

Details

The number of agents/locations in agents2 must be equal to 1 or to the length of turtles.

If torus = FALSE, world does not need to be provided.

If torus = TRUE and the distance from one turtles to its corresponding agent/location agents2 is smaller around the sides of the world than across it, then the direction to the agent/location agents2 going around the sides of the world is given to the turtle.

If a turtle is facing its own location, its heading does not change.
