Summary

Function: float llVecDist( vector vec_a, vector vec_b );

Returns a float that is the undirected nonnegative distance between vec_a and vec_b ( llVecMag(vec_a - vec_b) ).

• vector vec_a Any valid vector
• vector vec_b Any valid vector

Examples

default {
    state_entry()
    {
        vector input_1 = <1.0,2.0,3.0>;
        vector input_2 = <3.0,2.0,1.0>;
        llOwnerSay("The distance between " + (string) input_1 + " and " + (string) input_2 + " is: "+(string)llVecDist(input_1, input_2) );
    }
}
