Command line syntax

ET_GPGeneralize <input_dataset> <out_feature_class> <generalize_tolerance>


Expression Explanation
<input_dataset> A Polyline feature class or feature layer
<out_feature_class> A String - the full name of the output feature class (A feature class with the same full name should not exist)
<generalize_tolerance> A Double representing  Generalize tolerance (maximum offset) - the maximum distance that the generalized polyline will differ from the original one

Scripting syntax
