#' Return Well-known Text representation of simple feature geometry

#' Return Well-known Text representation of simple feature geometry or coordinate reference system
#' @param x object of class `sfg`, `sfc`, or `sf`
#' @param digits integer; number of decimal digits to print
#' @param ... ignored
#' @param EWKT logical; use PostGIS Enhanced WKT (includes srid)
#' @name st_astext
#' @details The returned WKT representation of simple feature geometry conforms to the
#' [simple features access](https://www.ogc.org/standards/sfa) specification and extensions (if `EWKT = TRUE`),
#' [known as EWKT](http://postgis.net/docs/using_postgis_dbmanagement.html#EWKB_EWKT), supported by
#' PostGIS and other simple features implementations for addition of SRID to a WKT string.
