I think, there is no method to draw lines with angle and length... Maybe some of the support libraries (glu, glaux, glut) does that.
You can calculate in on your self, so you get two points.

Make your own function:

This is what you got:

X1 = 15
Y1 = 30
Angle = 1.23 <-- in radians (360 degrees = 2*PI radians)
Length = 50


Then calculate what you need:

X2 = X1 + Length * cos(Angle)
Y2 = Y1 + Length * sin(Angle)


Now draw a line between (X1, Y1) and (X2, Y2).
