   llVecNorm returns zero vector as result when input is below a certain magnitude

Examples

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

Notes

  • Mathematically equivalent to:
    • vec / llVecMag( vec )
    • vec / llSqrt( vec.x * vec.x + vec.y * vec.y + vec.z * vec.z )
