Abstract


   CSPICE_VCRSS returns a double precision 3-vector describing 
   the cross product (outer product) of two 3-vectors. An error 
   signals if the inputs are not 3 vectors.

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

I/O

   
   Given:
   
      v1, 
      v2    two double precision 3-vectors
   
   the call:
   
      cspice_vcrss, v1, v2, vout
   
   returns
   
      vout  the double precision 3-vector containing the cross
            product of 'v1' and 'v2'

Examples


   Native IDL code to calculate the same vector result:
   
      vout = crossp(v1,v2) 
   
   The native IDL function accepts arbitrary sized N vectors, but 
   ignores all but the first three components of the vectors. Both
   vectors must consist of at least three elements.

Particulars


   None.
