A canvas lineCap example

function canvasReady() {
  draw(document.getElementById('canvas').getContext('2d'));
}
function draw(ctx) {
  var lineCap = ['butt','round','square'];

  // Draw guides
  ctx.strokeStyle = '#09f';
  ctx.beginPath();
  ctx.moveTo(10,10);
  ctx.lineTo(140,10);
  ctx.moveTo(10,140);
  ctx.lineTo(140,140);
  ctx.stroke();

  // Draw lines
  ctx.strokeStyle = 'black';
  for (var i=0;i<lineCap.length;i++){
    ctx.lineWidth = 15;
    ctx.lineCap = lineCap[i];
    ctx.beginPath();
    ctx.moveTo(25+i*50,10);
    ctx.lineTo(25+i*50,140);
    ctx.stroke();
  }
