Returns a vector that is the region position of the root object of the object script is attached to

Examples

default{
  touch_start( integer vIntTouched ){
    string vStrMessage = "The prim with this script is ";
    if (llGetPos() != llGetRootPosition()){
      vStrMessage += "NOT ";
    }
    llSay( PUBLIC_CHANNEL, vStrMessage + "centered on the root prim." );

Useful Snippets

//-- there is no llSetLocalPos, this adds the functionality
//-- to match llGetLocalPos() in a child prim
fSetLocalPos( vector vPosOffset ){
  llSetPos( llGetRootPosition() + vPosOffset );
}
//-- this will move a root prim by the offset, or set the
//-- position of a child prim relative to the root.
