 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) Parameters

 [x1, y1], [x2, y2], ... - list of points in 2-D [x1, y1, z1], [x2, y2, z2], ... - list of points in 3-D options - (optional) equations of the form option=value. For a complete list, see plot/options and plot3d/options. Description

 • 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. Examples
