Try the

Kineme GL Tools patch. It was a GL Spline patch that might be just what you're after.

iterator?

There isn't an explicit curved line patch, but you could try a couple things:

GLTools has a spline patch that might do what you want. It's a bit difficult to work with sometimes though, since it's only got one somewhat hard-to-use interpolation method at the moment.

You could also try using several Line patches inside an iterator, and have some math generate the curve. This is the most portable way to do it.

There are some people working on cocoa drawing patches, but I've not seen any that are fully feature-complete yet.

thinking different

Probably totally not what you're after, but you can use an accumulator plus mouse input moving some kind of shape to make a basic paint tool. Then you can draw lines or whatever else freehand. I've been working on a paint tool with QC lately, it works really well.

You could also do the same thing, but use some kind of math input or whatever else to move the brush and draw the lines.

Ian Grant?

I think it was Ian Grant that e-mailed me a beta a month or two ago; it drew cocoa rounded rectangles with various parameters. He said he was working on some other prims as well. Not sure how far that got though, since he mentioned not being a programmer...
