struct line_pnts* Vect_new_line_struct  (  void  ) 
Creates and initializes a line_pnts structure.
This structure is used for reading and writing vector lines and polygons. The library routines handle all memory allocation. If 3 lines in memory are needed at the same time, then simply 3 line_pnts structures have to be used.
To free allocated memory call Vect_destroy_line_struct().
Calls G_fatal_error() on error.
