Converted NURBS toolbox
Updated 14 Mar 2007

The NURBS toolbox, created by Mark Spink, is a very useful tool. However, some of the routines were written in C. This is not necessarily a bad thing as long as you know how to compile them to mex files for your machine. If you don't want to mess with mex files, or you want to be able to edit the code and don't know anything about C, I've rewritten the C code in MATLAB. You can find the original toolbox at

The included files replace the following mex files with the m-file equivalent.


In addition, I've included the translated C code in the comments, line for line.

This does not include every file in the NURBS toolbox, just the mex files. You will still want to download the toolbox and replace the mex files with the included files.
