Cubic Spline Mininum Point Distance

 Don Lancaster
Description: Finding the nearest distance from a point to a cubic spline is nontrivial. It is of interest for curve fitting and drawing the "best" curve through a number of points. A Newton's Method repeat approximation solution is presented here.
