I am not sure if this is the right place for this question, but I hope some planning experts will help me out.

I have only recently started reading Steve LaValle's book on motion planning. It mentions that a rotating link with a fixed pivot has a configuration space of a unit circle.

Since the configuration space is the set of all possible configurations the link can have, i.e. all possible angles from 0° to 360°, shouldn't the c-space be a line rather than a circle?
