Matt Juntunen commented on GEOMETRY-9:
--------------------------------------

Changing the length() and withLength() methods to getMagnitude() and withMagnitude() after
discusson on the dev mailing list.

>                 Key: GEOMETRY-9

>             Project: Apache Commons Geometry
>          Issue Type: Wish

> We should add some more methods to the Euclidean vector classes for user convenience
and algorithm clarity.
>  # length() – more intuitive alias for getNorm()
>  # project(Vector) – returns the current vector projected onto the given vector
>  # static project(Vector, Vector) – static version of project
>  # reject(Vector) – returns the current vector projected onto the plane whose normal
is passed to the method (vec equals vec.project(v) + vec.reject(v))
>  # static reject(Vector, Vector) – static version of reject
>  # lerp(Vector, double) – linear interpolation between the current vector and the given
one
>  # static lerp(Vector, Vector, double) – static version of lerp
>  # withLength(double) – returns the current vector with the given length. This is equivalent
to vector.normalize().scalarMultiply(x) but without the intermediate vector.
