mist.getPathInSegments

Added with: Mist 4.5
Description
Returns a table of points that divide the passed path in a given number of segments. For example if a path is approximately 100km in length and you pass number of segments of 5, then the function will return 6 points that are approximately 20 km apart from another.
Syntax
table mist.getPathInSegments(table path , number segments ,boolean exact )
Valid Input Values:
{[1] = {x = 2300, y = 234526}, [2] = {x = 2300, y = -2352},[3] = {x = 35235, y = -564156},[4] = {x = 54, y = 48456456}, }
Return value:
table
Return example:
Usage Examples:
The following example uses land.finPathOnroads to get a path that a ground AI group could take between two points.
           local rPath = land.findPathOnRoads('roads', spawnPoint.x, spawnPoint.y, roadEnd.x, roadEnd.y)
           local segments = mist.getPathInSegments(rPath, 5)
Notes:
At time of creation exact value is not coded.
