Description

This function performs Cubic spline interpolation on XY range data. You should specify the X coordinates on the spline, and it will output a vector contains the interpolated values on these X values.

Examples

  1. Import Interpolation.dat on \Samples\Mathematics folder.
  2. Highlight column B and type spline -d on the command window to bring up the dialog.
  3. On the X Value to Interpolate drop-down list, select Col(C).
  4. Click OK to do interpolation on column C values.
