ImagickDraw::pathCurveToQuadraticBezierSmoothAbsolute

← pathCurveToQuadraticBezierAbsolute   pathStart →
This function cannot be used to continue a cubic Bezier curve smoothly. It can only continue from a quadratic curve smoothly.

    $draw->pathStart();
    $draw->pathMoveToAbsolute(50, 250);

    // This specifies a quadratic bezier curve with the current position as the start
    // point, the control point is the first two params, and the end point is the last two params.
    $draw->pathCurveToQuadraticBezierAbsolute(

    // point, the control point is mirrored from the previous curves control point
    // and the end point is defined by the x, y values.
