Parameters

bodyA: (b2.Body) the first attached body
bodyB: (b2.Body) the second attached body
anchorAx: (number) the x coordinate of the world anchor point of bodyA
anchorAy: (number) the y coordinate of the world anchor point of bodyA

local jointDef = b2.createDistanceJointDef(body1, body2, 100, 100, 200, 100)
local distanceJoint = world:createJoint(jointDef)
--by default length between two bodies is the length they have between them when joint was created but it is possilbe to change it using
distanceJoint:setLength(200)
distanceJoint:setDampingRatio(0.5)
distanceJoint:setFrequency(4)
