Definition of the 1D B_spline curve.
Uniform or nonuniform Rational or nonrational Periodic or nonperiodic
a bspline curve is defined by :
The Degree (up to 25)
The Poles (and the weights if it is rational)
The Knots and Multiplicities
The knot vector is an increasing sequence of reals without repetition. The multiplicities are the repetition of the knots.
If the knots are regularly spaced (the difference of two consecutive knots is a constant), the knots repartition is :
The curve may be periodic.
On a periodic curve if there are k knots and p poles. the period is knot(k)  knot(1)
the poles and knots are infinite vectors with :
knot(i+k) = knot(i) + period
pole(i+p) = pole(i)

Returns the global continuity of the curve : C0 : only geometric continuity, C1 : continuity of the first derivative all along the Curve, C2 : continuity of the second derivative all along the Curve, C3 : continuity of the third derivative all along the Curve, CN : the order of continuity is infinite.

The following functions computes the point of parameter U and the derivatives at this point on the Bspline curve arc defined between the knot FromK1 and the knot ToK2.

Of course the evaluations are different outside this parametric domain.

Returns the number of poles.
void Law_BSpline::PeriodicNormalization  (  Standard_Real &  U  )  const 
returns the parameter normalized within the period if the curve is periodic : otherwise does not do anything
Standard_Real Law_BSpline::Pole  (  const Standard_Integer  Index  )  const 
Returns the pole of range Index. Raised if Index < 1 or Index > NbPoles.
void Law_BSpline::Poles  (  TColStd_Array1OfReal &  P  )  const 
Returns the poles of the Bspline curve;.
Raised if the length of P is not equal to the number of poles.
Standard_Boolean Law_BSpline::RemoveKnot  (  const Standard_Integer  Index, 
const Standard_Integer  M,  
const Standard_Real  Tolerance  
) 
Decrement the knots multiplicity to <M>. If M is 0 the knot is removed. The Poles sequence is modified.
As there are two ways to compute the new poles the average is computed if the distance is lower than the <Tolerance>, else False is returned.
A low tolerance is used to prevent the modification of the curve.
A high tolerance is used to "smooth" the curve.
Raised if Index is not in the range [FirstUKnotIndex, LastUKnotIndex] pole insertion and pole removing this operation is limited to the Uniform or QuasiUniform BSplineCurve. The knot values are modified . If the BSpline is NonUniform or Piecewise Bezier an exception Construction error is raised.
void Law_BSpline::Resolution  (  const Standard_Real  Tolerance3D, 
Standard_Real &  UTolerance

given Tolerance3D returns UTolerance such that if f(t) is the curve we have  t1  t0 < Utolerance ===> f(t1)  f(t0) < Tolerance3D
void Law_BSpline::Reverse  (  ) 
Changes the direction of parametrization of <me>. The Knot sequence is modified, the FirstParameter and the LastParameter are not modified. The StartPoint of the initial curve becomes the EndPoint of the reversed curve and the EndPoint of the initial curve becomes the StartPoint of the reversed curve.
Standard_Real Law_BSpline::ReversedParameter  (  const Standard_Real  U  )  const 
Returns the parameter on the reversed curve for the point of parameter U on <me>.
returns UFirst + ULast  U
void Law_BSpline::Segment  (  const Standard_Real  U1, 
const Standard_Real  U2  
) 
Segments the curve between U1 and U2. The control points are modified, the first and the last point are not the same. Warnings : Even if <me> is not closed it can become closed after the segmentation for example if U1 or U2 are out of the bounds of the curve <me> or if the curve makes loop. After the segmentation the length of a curve can be null. raises if U2 < U1.
void Law_BSpline::SetKnot  (  const Standard_Integer  Index,

void Law_BSpline::SetKnot  (  const Standard_Integer  Index, 
const Standard_Real  K,  
const Standard_Integer  M  
) 
Changes the knot of range Index with its multiplicity. You can increase the multiplicity of a knot but it is not allowed to decrease the multiplicity of an existing knot.
Raised if K >= Knots(Index+1) or K <= Knots(Index1). Raised if M is greater than Degree or lower than the previous multiplicity of knot of range Index. Raised if Index < 1  Index > NbKnots
void Law_BSpline::SetKnots  (  const TColStd_Array1OfReal &  K  ) 
Changes all the knots of the curve The multiplicity of the knots are not modified.
Raised if there is an index such that K (Index+1) <= K (Index).
Raised if K.Lower() < 1 or K.Upper() > NbKnots
void Law_BSpline::SetNotPeriodic  (  ) 
Makes a non periodic curve. If the curve was non periodic the curve is not modified.
void Law_BSpline::SetOrigin  (  const Standard_Integer  Index  ) 
Set the origin of a periodic curve at Knot(index) KnotVector and poles are modified. Raised if the curve is not periodic Raised if index not in the range [FirstUKnotIndex , LastUKnotIndex].
void Law_BSpline::SetPeriodic  (  ) 
Makes a closed Bspline into a periodic curve. The curve is periodic if the knot sequence is periodic and if the curve is closed (The tolerance criterion is Resolution from gp). The period T is equal to Knot(LastUKnotIndex)  Knot(FirstUKnotIndex). A periodic Bspline can be uniform or not. Raised if the curve is not closed.
void Law_BSpline::SetPole  (  const Standard_Integer  Index,
