Represent interest-rate curve object based on vector of dates and data
IRDataCurve is a representation of an interest-rate
curve object with dates and data. You can construct this object directly
by specifying dates and corresponding interest rates or discount factors;
alternatively, you can bootstrap the object from market data. After
an interest-rate curve object is constructed, you can:
Calculate forward and zero rates and determine par yields.
Extract the discount factors.

Type of interest-rate curve:

Scalar that sets the compounding frequency per year for
Day-count basis of the financial curve. A vector of integers.

Dates corresponding to rate data.
