fitted curves

If you try to draw a fitted curve through 3 points which you know are on
a parabola, QC7 doesn't draw a parabola at all. Normally, if you define
"n" points you would expect the fitted curve to be a polynomial of the
(n-1)th degree. The problem with QC7's "fitted curve" is that it lets
you jump anywhere on the screen so that you can even cross the curve
unto itself...definitely not good for function definitions :-(( I am
just wondering what mathematical formulation these curves have
internally, if any. There also seems to be no way of snapping to them at
all, except at the endpoints. Weird.
