## Defining an SVG path using `d`

The `d`

attribute should receive information about the particular points you want to draw your path on. Currently, `Path`

can handle SVG commands for lines and arcs. For detailed information about the information that each SVG command expects, check out this resource. In your style program, to render each of the following types of SVG commands, pass `d`

the return value of the following functions:

**Line or series of connected line segments**:`pathFromPoints(complete, [[x1, y1], [x2, y2],...,[xn, yn]])`

where:`complete`

:`"open"`

to keep the SVG path open,`"closed"`

to draw a line from the last point to the first`[[x1, y1], [x2, y2],...,[xn, yn]]`

is the list of ordered points to make up the SVG path

**Arc**:`arc(complete, start, end, radius, rotation, largeArc, arcSweep)`

(well-illustrated documentation on the purpose of each of the arc attributes in SVG can be found here):`complete`

:`"open"`

to keep the SVG path open,`"closed"`

to draw a line from the last point to the first`start`

: Coordinate`[x,y]`

representing the beginning of the arc`end`

: Coordinate`[x,y]`

representing the endpoint of the arc`radius`

: List of length 2`[rx, ry]`

, where`rx`

is the radius of the ellipse to draw the arc along in the`x`

direction (i.e. the width), and`ry`

is the radius of the ellipse in the`y`

direction.`rotation`

Number representing the degree of rotation of the ellipse`largeArc`

:`0`

to draw shorter of 2 arcs,`1`

to draw the longer`arcSweep`

:`0`

to draw in the counter-clockwise direction from`start`

to`end`

,`1`

to draw in the clockwise direction

**Curve passing through three points**:`interpolateQuadraticFromPoints(pathType,p0,p1,p2)`

where:`pathType`

:`"open"`

to keep the SVG path open,`"closed"`

to draw a line from the last point to the first`p0`

: start point`p1`

: middle point — unlike a standard quadratic Bézier curve, which will*not*pass through the middle control point, this curve will actually pass exactly through this point.`p2`

: end point
