Description

This class represents a 2D vector (x, y). This class provides access to RLPy's internal 2D vector math library allowing 2D vectors to be handled easily, in a manner compatible with internal RLPy data structures. It also supports operators and provides some constants for your convenience:

Constant Description
RVector2.ZERO 2D zero vector2: (0, 0)
RVector2.UNIT_X 2D x unit vector2: (1, 0)
RVector2.UNIT_Y 2D y unit vector2: (0, 1)
RVector2.UNIT_XY 2D unit vector2: (1, 1)

Constructors & Destructors

__init__

Initialize a new RVector2 object as a zeroed 2D vector: (0, 0).

a = RLPy.RVector2()

__init__( self, x, y )

Initialize a new RVector2 object as a 2D vector: (x, y).

Parameters

x [IN] a numerical value for x coordinate - float / int
y [IN] a numerical value for y coordinate - float / int
a = RLPy.RVector2(1, 2)

__init__( self, args )

Initialize a new RVector2 object with another RVector2 object: args. This new RVector2 object has the same value as args.

a = RLPy.RVector2(1, 2)
b = RLPy.RVector2(a)

Operators

==

The "equal to" operator.

See Also: !=

a = RLPy.RVector2(1, 2)
b = a

print(a == b) #True

!=

The "not equal to" operator.

See Also: ==

a = RLPy.RVector2()
b = RLPy.RVector2(1, 2)

print(a != b) #True

<

The "less than" operator. Similar to string comparison: Returns True upon the first match that is less than, and False if it is greater than. If the current comparison is equal, continue onto the next element. If all elements are equal then return False.

See Also: <=

a = RLPy.RVector2(0, 0)
b = RLPy.RVector2(0, 1)
c = RLPy.RVector2(1, 0)
d = RLPy.RVector2(0, 0)

print(a< b) #True
print(b< c) #True
print(a< d) #False

>

The "greater than" operator. Similar to string comparison: Returns True upon the first match that is greater than, and False if it is less than. If the current comparison is equal, continue onto the next element. If all elements are equal then return False.

See Also: >=

b = RLPy.RVector2(0, 1)
c = RLPy.RVector2(1, 0)
d = RLPy.RVector2(0, 0)

print(b >a) #True
print(c >b) #True
print(d >a) #False

<=

The "less than or equal" operator. Similar to string comparison: Returns True upon the first match that is less than, and False if it is greater than. If the current comparison is equal, continue onto the next element. If all elements are equal then return True.
