LoopRez v0.6 Lum Mods

This is a posting of Ged Larsen's LoopRez v0.6 script. I have modified it slightly so that it automatically rezzes a root prim of the correct orientation.

////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
// LoopRez v0.6, by Ged Larsen, 20 December 2006
// Strife Onizuka was here in 2008 
//
// - rez a number of objects in an ellipse, whose size is determined by xRadius and yRadius
// - all facing "outwards", along a tangent to the ellipse
// - can set how much the objects flare outwards
// - properly handles object rotation corrections (for example, X-axis 180 degree rotation helps for flexi-prim skirts)
// - can also get a 'saddle' bend, to generate a bend that might help for necklaces (from Ariane Brodie)
//
// To use:
//    1) create a prim that will contain this script and the object to use
//    2) put the script into the prim
//     3) create an object that will be used, and name it "Object"
//    4) put "Object" into the prim containing the script, by dragging it from your inventory
//    5) get out of Edit Mode, and touch the prim
//
// Random note:
// - this version does NOT insure equal spacing of objects along the perimeter of the ellipse
// - i.e., objects "bunch up" at the long ends of an ellipse; the effect should be acceptable for non-extreme ellipses
// - even spacing of objects can be accomplished, but requires simulation of integral calculus, which slows down the script
//
// References:
// - tangent formulas from: http://mathworld.wolfram.com/Ellipse.html

string objectName = "My Skirt Prim";          // object to use; will need to be in the inventory of the prim containing this script

integer numObjects = 16 ;                // how many objects
