Here’s a small note from university time way back in 2000, which details a method by Roger WIlcock, author of the RoPS PostScript interpreter, on how to draw Bézier curves by recursive subdivision (de Casteljau construction). It uses an approximation of the curve’s flatness to decide when to subdivide further.
