I have a python script in Arc10 that uses the features to line tool. I however don't have the license to run it. I was wondering if there is a Qgis tool or process that would essentially do the same thing?
The geometry tools menu in Qgis has a number of options for converting features to lines
There is also the points to path plugin mentioned in this blog post http://spatialgalaxy.net/2011/12/30/qgis-plugin-of-the-week-points-to-paths/ athough it doesn't appear to be in the official repositry.
For scripting these menu items are avaliable from the sexante plugin.
