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.
Does the "Polyons to Lines" tool in the "Vector" menu in QGIS not do what you want?
