@align_breakpoints(nim)

builds a new nim with linear interpolation type whose homogeneous breakpoints are the breakpoints of all components of the arguments.

A vectorial nim is homogeneous if all its component have the same breakpoints, i.e. breakpoints with the same abcisses.

In the figure below, the diagram at the top left shows a vectorial nim with two components:

• the effect of @sample is pictured at top right,

• the effect of @align_breakpoints is sketched at bottom left,

• and the effect of @linearize is illustrated at bottom right.
