The zip contains the following files:.
*loadsvg: main function
*svgc: local function for calculating points on Bézier curves
*svgl: local function to compute a point on a line

This function reads the path data in svg and calculates curves and lines. All lines and cubic Bézier curves are supported, but quadratic and elliptical curves are not yet supported (To be updated). It also does not support circles or rectangles that are not path data.

*A fill cannot be drawn.

How to use
*loadsvg (filename, finish, graph)
*filename: the name of the file you want to load
*finish: The accuracy of curves and lines. This value is between 0 and 1, and the closer to 0, the higher the resolution.
*graph: Takes a value of true or false. If true, draw svg on the graph. If false, just output an array of coordinates.
