There are four methods for specifying locations at which to partition curves:

Partition Create Curve <curve_id> {Fraction <fraction_list> | Position <xpos> <ypos> <zpos> | [with] <vertex_list> | <node_list> }

The first two forms of the command create additional vertices and use those vertices to split a curve. The third form of the command uses existing vertices to split the curve. The fourth form of the command uses existing nodes to split the curve.

Using the **fraction** option, vertices are created at the specified fractions along the curve (in the range [0,1].) Subsequently, the curve is split at each vertex, resulting in n+1 new curves, where n is the number of fraction values specified.

Using the **position** option, vertices are created at the closest location along the curve to each of the specified position. Subsequently, the curve is split at each vertex, resulting in n+1 new curves, where n is the number of positions specified.

If the **node** option is used, meshed curves may be partitioned. The specified nodes must lie on the curve to be partitioned. The curve is split at each node specified, and any other mesh entities are divided appropriately amongst the curve partitions.
