       This class represents a NURBS curve based on the knot vector and the control  points  that
       you  specify.  The knotVector field specifies a floating-point array of values; the values
       are the coordinates of the knot points in the curve, and  you  must  enter  them  in  non-
       decreasing  order.  The  numControlPoints field specifies the number of control points the
       curve will have and will use the current coordinates that are indexed from the  coordIndex

       You  can get a curve of minimum order (2) by specifying two more knots than control points
       and having at least two control points. This  curve  would  be  a  set  of  line  segments
       connecting the control points together.

       You  can  get  a curve of maximum order (8) by specifying 8 more knots than control points
       and having at least 8 control points.  In  this  curve,  each  control  point  would  have
       influence on a larger portion of the curve than with curves of lesser order.

       The  control points of the curve are transformed by the current transformation matrix. The
       curve is drawn with the current lighting model and drawing style (drawing style FILLED  is
       treated  as LINES). The coordinates, normals, and texture coordinates of a NURBS curve are
       generated, so you cannot bind explicit normals or texture coordinates to a NURBS curve.

       The approximation of the curve by line segments is  affected  by  the  current  complexity


     SoSFInt32           numControlPoints
          Number of control points for the curve.

     SoMFInt32           coordIndex
          Coordinate indices for the control points.

     SoMFFloat           knotVector
          The knot vector for the curve. Values must be in non-decreasing order.


          Creates an indexed NURBS curve node with default settings.

     static SoType       getClassTypeId()
          Returns type identifier for this class.


          Draws the curve based on the current coordinates, material, and so on.

          Picks the curve based on the current coordinates and transformation.

          Computes  the  bounding  box  that  encloses  all  control points of the curve with the
          current transformation applied to them. Sets the center to the average of  the  control

          If  any line segment callbacks are registered with the action, they will be invoked for
          each successive segment approximating the curve.
