 SpaceCurve
 plot a space curve in R^2 or R^3

 Calling Sequence SpaceCurve(C, t=a..b, opts)

Parameters

 C - Vector; specify the components of the curve t - name; specify the parameter of the curve a, b - real constants; specify the range of the curve opts - equation(s) of the form option=value where option is one of caption or Student plot options;

Description

 • The SpaceCurve(C, t=a..b) calling sequence plots a space curve in R^2 or R^3. The plot is displayed in Cartesian coordinates.
 • The opts argument can contain any of the Student plot options or caption
 – caption = string A caption for the plot.  The default is Graph of the curve represented parametrically by the components of the given vector.  For more information about specifying a caption, see plot/typesetting.
