Hi all,

I am looking for a simple python script that I can direct at a line shapefile and have it cycle through each line in the file while constructing points along each lines. The number of points required per line is a value in the attribute table. Points need to be evenly space with a point at the beginning and at the end of each line.

I have almost 5000 lines to cycle through with any where between 2 and 50+ points per line.

I am running arcgis 10.1.
