# A question about path-connected and arcwise-connected spaces

If $X$ is a Hausdorff topological space and it is path-connected, then it is arcwise-connected.

A path-connected Hausdorff space is arc-connected. I don't know (but would like to) any simple proofs of this claim. One way is to prove that every Peano (meaning compact, connected, locally connected and metrizable) space is arc-connected and then note that the image of a path in a Hausdorff space is Peano. The former part is not very easy but the latter part is. For the proofs see Chapter 31 of General Topology by Stephen Willard.
