/// draw_chord(x1,y1,x2,y2,x3,y3,x4,y4,outline,precision)
//
//  Draws a chord of an elliptical disk mimicing draw_chord() from GM5.
//  It also mimics draw_ellipse() from GM6 in that it will draw either as a
//  solid or an outline, and it uses a primitive drawn at a limited resolution.
//  The chord is a closed figure of an arc with a straight line between 
//  the starting and ending point. The arc is drawn following the perimeter
//  of the ellipse, counterclockwise, from the starting point to the ending
//  point. The starting point is the intersection of the ellipse and the line
//  from the center to (x3,y3). Then ending point is the intersection of the 
//  ellipse and the line form the center to (x4,y4).
//
//      x1,y1       1st corner of bounding rectangle, real
//      x2,y2       2nd corner of bounding rectangle, real
//      x3,y3       determines the starting point, real
//      x4,y4       determines the ending point, real
//      outline     true to draw as an outline, bool
//      precision   number of segments a full ellipse would be drawn with,
//                  [4..64] divisible by 4, default 24, real (optional)
