in reply to Curveto Command in SVG

The issue is that the get_path method is designed specifically for creating appropriate paths in <path/>, <polyline/>, and <polygon/> tags. Piecewise-linear paths are the only things these three tags have in common.

If you want to use the other path commands, you need to create the path yourself. The syntax is not really very complicated.

    Found the module code and I believe I understand what it going on now.
    my $string = "M 6,0 C 2.676,0 0,2.676 0,6 L 0,$cont_tbh L $cont_w, +$cont_tbh L $cont_w,6 C $cont_w,2.676 $cont_w - 2.676,0 $cont_w - 6,0 + L 6,0 Z"; my $tag = $svg->path( d => $string, id => 'pline_1', style => { 'fill-color' => 'green' } );

    The following allows me to send a custom string to the SVG engine.
    Thanks, Paul.
