plottools[curve] - generate 2-D or 3-D plot object for a curve

Calling Sequence

curve([[x1,y1], [x2, y2], ...], options)

curve([[x1, y1, z1], [x2, y2, z2], ...], options)


[x1, y1], [x2, y2], ...


list of points in 2-D

[x1, y1, z1], [x2, y2, z2], ...


list of points in 3-D



(optional) equations of the form option=value. For a complete list, see plot/options and plot3d/options.



The curve command creates a two- or three-dimensional plot data object, which when displayed is a curve joining points in the specified list. The first argument to curve must be a list of points.  They can be either 2-D or 3-D.


The plot data object produced by the curve command can be used in a PLOT or PLOT3D data structure, or displayed using the plots[display] command.


Remaining arguments are interpreted as options, which are specified as equations of the form option = value.  For more information, see plottools, plot/options and plot3d/options.
