Abstract


   CSPICE_RECCYL converts rectangular (Cartesian) coordinates to
   cylindrical coordinates.

   For important details concerning this module's function, please refer to
   the CSPICE routine reccyl_c.

I/O

   
   Given:
   
      rectan   a double precision 3-vector or 3xN array
               containing the rectangular coordinates of a 
               position or set of positions
   
   the call:
   
      cspice_reccyl, rectan, r, lon, z
   
   returns:
   
      r     a double precision scalar or N-vector describing the
            distance of the point from z axis.
      
      lon   a double precision scalar or N-vector describing the  
            cylindrical angle of the point from XZ plane as measured
            in radians.

      z     a double precision scalar or N-vector describing the
            height of the point above XY plane.

            'r', 'lon', and 'z' return with the same measure of 
             vectorization (N) as 'rectan'.

   -Icy Version 1.1.2, 29-SEP-2007, EDW (JPL)
      
      Replaced the fragment
      
         "return with the same order"
         
      with
      
         "return with the same measure of 
          vectorization"

   -Icy Version 1.1.1, 09-DEC-2005, EDW (JPL)

      Added Examples section.

   -Icy Version 1.1.0, 12-SEP-2004, EDW (JPL)

       Added capability to process vector 'rectan' as
       input returning vectors 'r', 'lon', and 'z'
       on output.

   -Icy Version 1.0.0, 16-JUN-2003, EDW (JPL)
