COMMENTS

The shortest segment from one side of an angle T through a point P inside T is called the Philo line of P in T.  For discussions and guides to related sequences, see A197032, A197008 and A195284.

EXAMPLE

length of Philo line:    3.7423891424451...; see A197145

endpoint on x axis:    (3.82891, 0)

endpoint on line y=2x: (1.44062, 2.88124)
