Procedure

   void vminus_c ( ConstSpiceDouble v1[3],  SpiceDouble vout[3] ) 

Abstract

 
   Negate a double precision 3-dimensional vector. 
 

Required_Reading

 
   None.

   VECTOR 
 

Brief_I/O

 
   VARIABLE  I/O  DESCRIPTION 
   --------  ---  -------------------------------------------------- 
   v1         I     Vector to be negated. 
   vout       O     Negated vector -v1. vout can overwrite v1. 
 
 

Detailed_Input

 
   v1      This may be any 3-dimensional, double precision vector. 
 

Detailed_Output

 
   vout    This will be the negation (additive inverse) of v1.  It 
           is a 3-dimensional, double precision vector.  vout may 
           overwrite v1. 
 

Parameters

 
   None. 
 

Exceptions

 
   Error free. 
 

Files

 
   None. 
 

Particulars

 
   vminus_c implements (by components) the expression vminus_c = -v1. 
   No error checking is performed since overflow can occur ONLY if 
   the dynamic range of positive floating point numbers is not the 
   same size as the dynamic range of negative floating point 
   numbers AND at least one component of v1 falls outside the 
   common range.  The likelihood of this occuring is so small as to 
   be of no concern. 
 

Examples

 
   The following table shows the output vout as a function of the 
   the input v1 from the subroutine vminus_c. 
 
   v1                     vout 
   ------------------------------------------------------- 
   (1, -2, 0)       (-1, 2, 0) 
   (0, 0,  0)       (0, 0,  0)
