public class BezierCurve extends Object implements IShape
Modifier and Type  Field and Description 

static double 
curveCollinearityEpsilon
If the distance between a point and a line is less than this constant, then we consider the point lies on the line.

static double 
distanceToleranceManhattan
The Manhattan distance is used in the case when either the line ((x1, y1), (x4, y4)) passes through both (x2, y2) and (x3, y3) or (x1, y1) = (x4, y4).

static double 
distanceToleranceSquare
In the case when neither the line ((x1, y1), (x4, y4)) passes through both (x2, y2) and (x3, y3) nor (x1, y1) = (x4, y4) we use the square of the sum of the distances mentioned below in compare to this field as the criterion of good approximation.

Constructor and Description
