VectorMultiply

This function multiplies two vectors together, and returns the result as a pipe-bar delimited list.

Syntax

VectorMultiply([Vector 1], [Vector 2])

Where:

Vector 1 is a pipe-bar delimited list representing the first vector (X|Y|Z).

Vector 2 is a pipe-bar delimited list representing the second vector (X|Y|Z).

Examples

RuleResult
VectorMultiply("1|2","3|4")Will return the product of the two 2D vectors, 3|8.
VectorMultiply("1|2|3","4|5|6")Will return the product of the two 3D vectors, 4|10|18.
