```You can use InterpolationOrder to control the resolution.

data == {{0, 1}, {1, 2}, {2, 3}, {3, 5},
{4, 8}, {5, 5}, {6, 2}, {7, 1},
{8, 1}, {9, 2}, {10, 4}};

Partition[
Table[
Plot[
Interpolation[data, InterpolationOrder -> n][x],
{x, 0, 10},
PlotRange -> {{0, 10}, {0, 9}},
ImageSize -> 288],
{n, 0, 3}],
2] // Grid

lowRes == Range[0, 10, 2];

Show[
ListLinePlot[{#, f@#} & /@ lowRes,
PlotStyle -> Blue],
Plot[
Interpolation[data, InterpolationOrder -> 1][x],
{x, 0, 10},
PlotStyle -> Red],
PlotRange -> {{0, 10}, {0, 9}},
ImageSize -> 500,
Epilog -> {AbsolutePointSize[6], Green,
Point[data]}]

==========================
Dear Group,

is there a method to plot an InterpolatingFunction at specific pointr
WITHIN Plot? I am of course aware that I can use ListPlot at any time,
though for certain reasons I have to stick with Plot. The main reason
is that I have a large amount of InterpolatingFunctions which I plot
with Plot as default, though at request I have to plot the same
InterpolatingFunctions at different resolutions. PlotPoints and
MaxRecursion is no good here, since lower resolution has to use a
certain set of x-values, defined prior to plotting. Obviously I want
to use the same Plot setup for both high and low-resolution cases.
Below is a toy modell of the problem:

f == Interpolation[{{0, 1}, {1, 2}, {2, 3}, {3, 5}, {4, 8}, {5, 5}, {6,
2}, {7, 1}, {8, 1}, {9, 2}, {10, 4}}];
lowRes == Range[0, 10, 2];
Plot[f[x], {x, 0, 10}, PlotRange -> {{0, 10}, {0, 9}}]
ListLinePlot[{#, f@#} & /@ lowRes, PlotRange -> {{0, 10}, {0, 9}}]

Again, what I want is to have a specific Plot call instead of the
ListLinePlot, but with same result as ListLinePlot.
Note that values of 'lowRes' may not correspond the exact x-
coordinates supplied to f.

Is there a way to tell Plot explicitly the steps to use? Any idea?
