( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Back to the trenches with me. I'm starting with a 2d space till i can wrap my head around it. The code and examples i am finding are not matching up in 3d space. Here's my closest attempt which still is wrong. Can anyone help?
# 2 points on a plane my $x = 2; my $y = 1; #yang is the y-angle 0-360 i want to rotate by my $yang = 45; #convert yang to radians $yang = 3.14159265358979*$yang/180; #rad is the radius of my sphere my $rad = sqrt($x**2 + $y**2); my $x = cos($yang)*$rad; my $y = sin($yang)*$rad; print "x=$x\ny=$y\n";
Advice appreciated.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
