For smooth operation start with the default values.

An arch is to be constructed out of four lengths. Two lengths
at each end are of unit length; the other middle two are of RAFTER LENGTH.
The end length has an angle of HIP LEAN with the vertical; the middle lengths
have an angle of ROOF LEAN with the vertical and a pitch PITCH.
The ends of the lengths are to be beveled. The middle lengths have an
INCLUDED angle or an angle read on a saw SCALE at the PEAK end and at the
RAFTER end next to the HIP end of the end length. The end length has a
bevel with an INCLUDED angle and a SCALE angle that might be read on a saw
at the HIP end next to the middle length and at the FOOT end next to the ground.
