CURVSPACE(P,N) generates N points that interpolates a curve (represented by a set of points) with an equal spacing. Each row of P defines a point, which means that P should be a n x 2 (2D) or a n x 3 (3D) matrix.
x = -2*pi:0.5:2*pi;
y = 10*sin(x);
z = linspace(0,10,length(x));
N = 50;
p = [x',y',z'];
q = curvspace(p,N);

The above example creates 50 evenly spaced points along a sinusoidal curve.
