A method for drawing curves and areas with the computer which is based on an algorithm developed by the French engineer and mathematician Pierre B?zier (1910-1999). B?zier worked for the French car manufacturer Renault for 42 years and is considered a pioneer in Computer Aided Design (CAD). The curve description he developed for drawing purposes uses individual reference points (also known as anchor points) and control points to determine the length, orientation and course of a curve. Many popular graphics programs for PCs use this method of drawing curves. The Postscript page description language also uses B?zier curves for describing curved lines.
