There is a script called spline.txt that Steve wrote.  There is also a parameterized version called spline_tube.a8s.  Search the forum for them.

After making a curve make a shape by using build > primitives > N-gon then use add N-gon tool in shapes section. Now select that shape then go to build > extrude and choose along a path option. After confirming the dialog you need to click on the curve you created first. Now there will be tube. ;)
