My apologies. You are right—I thought I was getting the line using either one, but when I replaced cos (degrees) with COS(radians), the line curved.
MY BAD!

What is wrong here? using pstricks, pst-plot and \pst-math, the following command
\parametricplot[plotstyle=curve, plotpoints=50]{-1.8}{1.8}{0.25 t Pi mul mul cos t}
which should create a curve opening left, creates a vertical line.
Minimal example:
Remember that cos in Postscript expects its argument in degrees, so you may wish to use instead
\parametricplot[plotstyle=curve, plotpoints=50]{-1.8}{1.8}{0.25 t 180 mul mul cos t}
