Insert points at equidistant locations along a line on a sphere. Note that the algorithm works in x-y-z coordinates. This means that, if more than one point is added, the points are not exactly equidistant in terms of great-circle distances after projection onto the sphere, with deviations becoming large for long lines. (See `sl.p2p`

for a more precise alternative where arbitrary fractions can be specified.)

1 | ```
sl.fillequidist(lon, lat, np = 1)
``` |

`lon` |
a vector of length 2 with the longitudes of the start and end points of the line. |

`lat` |
a vector of length 2 with the latitudes of the start and end points of the line. |

`np` |
an integer giving the number of points to be inserted. Default is 1 (in which case the algorithm is exact even for long lines). |

`lon` |
a vector of length |

`lat` |
a vector of length |
