Summary

Function: vector llRot2Fwd( rotation q );

Computes the orientation of the local x-axis relative to the earth.
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 of the prim, since it's x-axis is always perpendicular to this local frontal plane.

Specification

Mathematically equivalent to: <lsl>ret = llVecNorm(<1., 0., 0.> * q);</lsl> If q is known to be a unit quaternion then it can be simplified as: <lsl>ret = <1., 0., 0.> * q;</lsl>
