"continuous first derivative" is listed as "continuously differentiable" 
in the list of meanings of this abbreviation:

I don't think that more than one alternative will be necessary. For 
4-point table lookups that go through all the original points, I don't 
know why anyone would aim lower than a C2 piecewise-polynomial. 
Unfortunately, it would be somewhat too late to just call it [tabread4~]. 
Or not.
