11 years evaluating whether something so basic to a CAD system should be implemented.  Amazing!

From TOOLKIT user's guide ....."Some other curve types, including Thru Points, From File, and Use Xsec do not currently use element trees in Creo Parametric, and are therefore not accessible via Creo Parametric TOOLKIT."

Sad .... and if you thought that you can use ProDatumcurveFromfileCreate() for creating a curve from coordinates in ibl format, it is of no help since after the featured is created any child will lose the reference after ProImportfeatRedefine().  It seems like a big mess and it seems like somebody has made some bad development decisions many years ago because of which we don't have needed functionality today.  And how difficult is to do this after all!?  With every release of Creo we get a bunch of exotic stuff that a few users will use, but hey, you cannot create a curve through points programatically, ...that is difficult.....  Pretty absurd.
