suppose I have t= [0,7,10,17,23,29,31] f_t= [4,3,11,19,12,9,17] and I have
plotted f_t vs t.

Now from this 7 data points plotting if I want to retrieve 100 data points
and save them in a text file. What do I have to do?

What I am asking is not a fitting of the plot. I know between two points
plot is linear.

What I am asking If I create a array like t=np.arange(0,31,.1) ,then what
is the corresponding array of f_t which agrees well with the previous
plot,i.e,for any t between t=0 to t=7, f_t will be determined by using a
straight line connecting (0,4) and (7,3) and so on.

It is if that's how you plotted it.

It sounds to me like you're asking how to do linear interpolation

But that's a type of curve fitting, and you specifically said you're
