## hobby – An implementation of Hobby’s algorithm for PGF/TikZ

This package defines a path generation function for PGF/TikZ which implements Hobby’s algorithm for a path built out of Bezier curves which passes through a given set of points. The path thus generated may by used as a TikZ ‘to path’.

The implementation is in LaTeX3.
