Specifies how the ends of lines and dashes will be drawn.
Examples

set the capStyle of graphic "dashedRectangle1" to "round"

Additional Comments
Expander triangle

Changes the appearance of line and dash ends for graphic objects. The three values it can be set to produce the following effects:

butt - no cap is added

square - the edge is extended beyond the end-point by half the line width

round - lines are ended by a half-circle centred at the end-point of the line

Note: This only affects polygon, freehand curve and line graphics which have their antialiased set to true.

See note under dashes for a caution about how "round" capstyle can obscure dashes in graphic lines.
