# CTAN Update: bezierplot

Date: June 19, 2019 7:35:26 PM CEST

Linus Romer submitted an update to the
bezierplot
package.
Version: 1.4 2019-06-18
License: lppl1.3c
Summary description: Approximate smooth function graphs with cubic bezier splines for use with TikZ or MetaPost
Announcement text:

There was a problem with the call bezierplot "sin(8*x)" 0 "4*pi" which now is fixed. This fix should (hopefully) not change calls that were working before.

The package’s Catalogue entry can be viewed at https://ctan.org/pkg/bezierplot The package’s files themselves can be inspected at http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/luatex/latex/bezierplot/

Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Petra Rübe-Pugliese

## bezierplot – Approximate smooth function graphs with cubic bezier splines for use with TikZ or METAPOST

This package consists of a Lua program as well as
a (Lua)LaTeX `.sty` file.

Given a smooth function, `bezierplot` returns a smooth
bezier path written in TikZ notation (which also matches METAPOST)
that approximates the graph of the function.
For polynomial functions of degree ≤ 3 and their inverses
the approximation is exact (up to numeric precision).

`bezierplot` also finds special points such as
extreme points and inflection points and reduces the
number of used points.
