 in favour of fmesher::fm_int()

This function generates points in one or two dimensions with a weight attached to each point. The weighted sum of a function evaluated at these points is the integral of that function approximated by linear basis functions. The parameter samplers describes the area(s) integrated over.

In case of a single dimension samplers is supposed to be a two-column matrix where each row describes the start and end points of the interval to integrate over. In the two-dimensional case samplers can be either a SpatialPolygon, an inla.mesh or a SpatialLinesDataFrame describing the area to integrate over. If a SpatialLineDataFrame is provided, it has to have a column called 'weight' in order to indicate the width of the line.

## Value

A data.frame, tibble, sf, or SpatialPointsDataFrame of 1D and 2D integration points, including a weight column and .block column.
