Summary

Function: vector llVecNorm( vector vec );

Returns a vector that is vec normalized (a unit vector sharing the same direction as vec).

• vector vec Any valid vector

Functionally equivalent to: vec / llVecMag(vec))

Examples

<lsl> default {

   state_entry()
   {
       vector input = <1.0,2.0,3.0>;
       llSay(0,"The unit vector on "+(string)input+" is: "+(string)llVecNorm(input) );
   }

}

</lsl>
