MathArray

class MathArray extends Array

Usage

MathArray is a base class, and should not be instantiated directly.

Cloning an object

const clone = vector.clone();

Scaling with constants

const u = v.scale(-1); // Reverse direction vector

Scaling with vectors is very flexible, you can e.g. set a component to zero, or flip a component's sign.

const u = v.scale([1, 1, 0]); // Set z component to zero
const w = v.scale([1, -1, 1]); // Flip y component

Methods

clone

array.clone()

copy

array.copy(array)

set

array.set(...args)

fromArray

array.fromArray(array, offset = 0)

toString

Calls formatString with the global math.gl config.

array.toString()

formatString

array.formatString(config)

toArray

array.toArray(array = [], offset = 0)

toFloat32Array

array.toFloat32Array()

equals

array.equals(array)

exactEquals

array.exactEquals(array)

length

array.length()

lengthSquared

array.lengthSquared()

distance

array.distance(mathArray)

distanceSquared

array.distanceSquared(mathArray)

normalize

array.normalize()

validate

Checks if a MathArray contains valid values.

array.validate(array = this)

Returns false if any value fails Number.isFinite test.

check

If config.debug is true, validates the MathArray and throws an error if it does not contains valid values.

array.check(array = this)

Mote: This method is called by all mutating methods.
