An implementation of B-splines.

In this implementation, the end tangents are created automatically by reflection.

In matrix form, the *local* interpolation on the interval t=[0..1] is described as follows:

P(t) = 1/6 * [ t^3 t^2 t 1 ] * [ -1 3 -3 1 ] * [ P-1 ] [ 3 -6 3 0 ] [ P0 ] [ -3 0 3 0 ] [ P1 ] [ 1 4 1 0 ] [ P2 ]

Where P-1 and P2 represent the neighbouring points or the extrapolated end points. Simple reflection is used to automatically create the end points.

The spline is discretized based on the chord length of the individual segments. In rare cases (sections with very high curvatures), the resulting distribution may be sub-optimal.

A future implementation could also handle closed splines.
