Exploration of squines and related curves

Exploration of squines and ... plines?
Inspired by Dr. James Tanton's video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yk-QCbTGNIY. Go there for an introduction to squines. A regular polygon is shown. The number of sides can be changed with the red slider (initially marked "square"). The red point on the polygon can be used to rotate the polygon. The blue point can be moved to trace out the curve of the squine or pline (polysine? sinp?), shown in black.
