Sample points on a linear geometry

1 | ```
st_line_sample(x, n, density, type = "regular", sample = NULL)
``` |

`x` |
object of class |

`n` |
integer; number of points to choose per geometry; if missing, n will be computed as |

`density` |
numeric; density (points per distance unit) of the sampling, possibly a vector of length equal to the number of features (otherwise recycled); |

`type` |
character; indicate the sampling type, either "regular" or "random" |

`sample` |
numeric; a vector of numbers between 0 and 1 indicating the points to sample - if defined sample overrules n, density and type. |
