This is more of a code sample, rather than a full fledged tool. It will take a a single polyline and break it into line objects at each node.
To use this tool, select a single polyline and then run the MBX file. The polyline will immediately be broken into line objects. One limitation of note is that it does not maintain the original style of the polyline object. Since this tool changes your data you may wish to save a copy of your table first.
This download is more of a code sample, rather than a full fledged tool. There is no user interface, when you run the MBX, it acts on the selected polyline.This tool was originally written by Andy Dressel, one of the original founders of MapInfo Corp. Source code is included and it may be helpful for MapBasic developers who wish to see how to work with polyline objects.
MapInfo Professional includes this capability as standard. The MapCAD toolset (provided in MapInfo Professional v9.5 and later) includes a Convert Polylines to Lines capability. To use this, run MapCAD and you will find the button on the Objects menu.
