CSPICE_CLIGHT returns the value for the constant speed of light
in a vacuum (IAU official value, in km/sec).
No input required.
clight = cspice_clight
clight the IAU official value for the speed of light in
vacuo: 299792.458 km/sec.
[1,1] = size(clight); double = class(clight)
Any numerical results shown for this example may differ between
platforms as the results depend on the SPICE kernels used as input
and the machine specific arithmetic implementation.
>> speed_of_light = cspice_clight
>> sprintf( 'Speed of light: %10.3f', cspice_clight )
Speed of light: 299792.458
