RE: Bezier Curves
Bezier curves V0.1 allows the points on a Bezier curve to be generated and drawn.

Quadratic Bezier and Cubic Bezier are implemented, but Polybeziers are not yet implemented.

RE: Bézier Curves (Bezier curves)
Oh memories!
I learned about Bezier curves about 10 years ago, I used them as a rough approximation of the catenary curve, to draw some wires in a game. Later on I used polybeziers and splines in other projects Smile

RE: Bézier Curves (Bezier curves)
When I saw how quickly I got a reply, I was expecting to see "why didn't you use this built-in function?" but I didn't find one.
I know I studied Bezier and splines but I have forgotten most of that and I can't recall ever needing them.

RE: Bézier Curves (Bezier curves)
This thread discusses plotting Bezier curves using the plotparam built-in and Parametric App (as
Possible alternative to using this PPL program).

Note: If my program gives a syntax error on a line containing "space)", just delete the space character.
