Abstract


   CSPICE_VNORM returns a scalar double describing the vector norm
   of a 3-vector where the vector norm is defined as the magnitude of
   the vector.

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

I/O


   Given :

      vec   an arbitrary double precision 3-vector.

   the call:

      norm = cspice_vnorm( vec )

   returns:

      norm   the double precision scalar norm of 'vec'.

Examples


   Native IDL code to calculate the same scalar result:

      vec_norm = norm( vec )

   The IDL norm function accepts an arbitrary size N vector.

Particulars


   None.
