QVM: Quaternions, Vectors, Matrices


#include <boost/qvm/quat_operations.hpp>

namespace qvm
    //Only enabled if:
    //  is_vec<A>::value && vec_traits<A>::dim==3
    template <class A>
    -unspecified-return-type- rot_quat( A const & axis, typename vec_traits<A>::scalar_type angle );


A quaternion of unspecified type which performs a rotation around the axis at angle radians.


In case the axis vector has zero magnitude, throws zero_magnitude_error.


The rot_quat function is not a view proxy; it returns a temp object.
