}

it is giving straight line in maximum cases. but please run it once and give input "100 200 300 500" ...it is giving straight but at one point it bends. you can know my problem when you will see the output of what i am saying. please help!! i am giving image of output below..! see it plz!

yes I am getting a similar problem with my code too.
if i give coordinate line1(1,1,400,400)
It gives a straight line
but if I give line1(400,400,1,1)
It gives a bent line like yours.
Why is it happening could any one explain?
