Sometimes I don't know how many points will be in the target array, yet I need to plot a line with markers. If too many points presented, markers on the plot will overlap and an single bold line will be plotted:
The solution acceptable for me is to 'thin out' input array in order to exclude points, which are too close to each other. My first implementation of such functional is:
So this code gives line with separated markers:
Perhaps, more clear and common way to do such thing is already designed?

I'd recommend to plot the data points with sufficiently small markers and a suitable fit on top. This is how data is usually visualized. You can't just drop some of the data, that is very confusing to readers.
