Report the coordinates of the `patches`

at the given
distances and directions from the `agents`

.

```
patchDistDir(world, agents, dist, angle, torus = FALSE)
# S4 method for worldNLR,matrix,numeric,numeric
patchDistDir(world, agents, dist, angle, torus = FALSE)
```

- world
`WorldMatrix`

or`worldArray`

object.- agents
Matrix (

`ncol`

= 2) with the first column`pxcor`

and the second column`pycor`

representing the`patches`

coordinates, or`AgentMatrix`

object representing the moving`agents`

.- dist
Numeric. Vector of distances from the

`agents`

. Must be of length 1 or of the same length as the number of`agents`

.- angle
Numeric. Absolute directions from the

`agents`

.`angle`

must be of length 1 or of the same length as the number of`agents`

. Angles are in degrees with 0 being North.- torus
Logical to determine if the

`world`

is wrapped. Default is`torus = FALSE`

.

Matrix (`ncol`

= 2) with the first column `pxcor`

and the second column
`pycor`

representing the coordinates of the `patches`

at the distances
`dist`

and directions `angle`

of `agents`

.
The order of the `patches`

follows the order of the `agents`

.

If `torus = FALSE`

and the `patch`

at distance `dist`

and
direction `angle`

of an `agent`

is outside the `world`

's extent,
`NA`

are returned for the `patch`

coordinates.
If `torus = TRUE`

, the `patch`

coordinates from a wrapped `world`

are returned.

If `agents`

are `turtles`

, their `headings`

are not taken into account;
the given directions `angle`

are used. To find a `patch`

at certain
distance from a `turtle`

using the `turtle`

's `heading`

, look at `pacthAhead()`

,
`patchLeft()`

or `patchRight()`

.
