Return value

float

Returns the absolute value of the angle between vector1 and vector2

Examples

vector $v1 = <<1, 0, 0>>;
vector $v2 = <<0, 1, 0>>;
// show that getAngleTo returns the absolute value of the angle
// between two orthogonal vectors (90 degrees) regardless of
// ordering between vector1 and vector2
print( getAngleTo($v1, $v2)) ;
print( getAngleTo($v2, $v1)) ;
