Summary

Function: vector llRot2Fwd( rotation q );

Computes the orientation of the local x-axis (front-direction of prim) relative to earth (global coordinate system).
Returns a vector that is the forward vector defined by q, i.e. a unit vector pointing in the local positive X direction.

• rotation q

Can be useful to identify the orientation of the local frontal-plane (coronal-plane) of the prim, since it's x-axis is always perpendicular to this local frontal plane.
