Looking for a MEL that allows you to draw a curve...

I once had a MEL script I got from HIghend3D that allowed you draw a curve with another CV. That CV could be a curve endpoint on a surface, for instance. For example, you could make a NURBS sphere and attach a curve to it, animate the sphere with surface curve rotating and moving etc, and then apply the MEL and the result would create a new curve that perfectly intersects that CV in space. Useful for drawing spirals or curve-paths for fighting jets, or what not.

Does anyone recall the name of this nifty MEL? Or another tool that can create similar results? I used to have it a long time ago and could use it again.

Thanks!

Don't know of it, but it shouldn't be too difficult to emulate--if you do any scripting yourself, I could get you pointed in the right direction (touch wood!).

Let me know.
