As an object that starts starts from one point to another, or that connects two points, a curve is technically referred to as a path. On a straight curve, a path goes from a starting point to an ending point. On a series of curves, each path goes from one point to another.
In Microsoft Windows, a path is also considered as going from a starting point to the end point of one or a series of curves. This means that, on a series of curves, a path is considered as going from the starting point of the first curve to the end point of the last curve. If the shape is closed, the path is its whole border.
