Difference between PolyLines and Splines.

Jim Thompson
Can someone explain the difference between Polylines and Splines please?
Do they have different applications? If so, what are those differences?

Jim,

here is a example of polyline: http://forum.librecad.org/Offset-feature-LibreCAD-tp5707006p5707009.html
Essentially they are lines and arcs as one entity.

Here is an example of spline: http://wiki.librecad.org/index.php/Spline_tutorial_1
splines are a mathematical way of expressing curves.
