## Perform a uniform resampling of a planar curve.
## The arrays @var{x} and @var{y} specify x and y coordinates of the points of the curve.
## On return, the same curve is approximated by @var{xs}, @var{ys} that have length @var{n}
## and the distances between successive points are approximately equal.
