    Hi,

    I am stuck a little... wanted to integrate the HPB-Target code (that everyone knows from the Coffee examples) into a C++ plugin of mine, but I can't find the C++ functions for vnorm() and vcross().
    Do I have to write them myself?

    Thanks for any hints, tips or slaps on the forehead ;-)

    Best regards,
    Jack

    vnorm() and vcross() are done with operators in C++. so vnorm(v) would be !v and vcros(v1,v2) would be v1 %v2 in C++.

    Thanks, Matthias!

    Wow, I didn't expect that :)
    Is that C++ standard, or do those operators come with the SDK?

    But I wonder: Wouldn't !v be something like the negation of v? I thought, ! is like NOT in Basic.

    In C++ you can overload operators. That means you can change the behaviour of operators for classes. So for instance the minus operator could mean something completely different for different classes. Just look at the Vector structure in the docu to see the overloaded operators.
