# curves – Curves for LaTeX picture environment

This package draws curves in the standard LaTeX picture environment using parabolas between data points with continuous slope at joins; for circles and arcs, it uses up to 16 parabolas. The package can also draw symbols or dash patterns along curves.

The package provides facilities equivalent to technical pens with
compasses and French curves. Curves consist of short secants
drawn by overlapping disks or line-drawing `\special` commands
selected by package options.
