Abstract:

This report describes 2 C classes a Vector class for performing vector algebra in 3-dimensional space 3D and a Rotation class for performing rotations of vectors in 3D. These classes give the programmer the ability to use vectors and rotation operators in 3D as if they were native types in the C language. Each class is self-contained in a single header file Vector.h and Rotation.h so that a C programmer only has to include the header file to make use of the code. Examples and reference sheets are provided to serve as guidance in using the classes.
