ST_MLineFromText — Return a specified ST_MultiLineString value from WKT representation.


geometry ST_MLineFromText(text WKT, integer srid);

geometry ST_MLineFromText(text WKT);


Makes a Geometry from Well-Known-Text (WKT) with the given SRID. If SRID is not give, it defaults to -1.

OGC SPEC - option SRID is from the conformance suite

Returns null if the WKT is not a MULTILINESTRING


If you are absolutely sure all your WKT geometries are points, don't use this function. It is slower than ST_GeomFromText since it adds an additional validation step.

This method implements the OpenGIS Simple Features Implementation Specification for SQL 1.1. s3.2.6.2

SELECT ST_MLineFromText('MULTILINESTRING((1 2, 3 4), (4 5, 6 7))');
