I have two 5d vectors of equal length, a current and a target. The coordinates are integer values, and the problem is to transform the one towards the other by incrementing. This seems like a dot-product kind of problem, and knowing they will always be the same length should simplify things. Currently, I'm subtracting 1 from the coordinate with the largest difference, and then adding 1 to the coordinate with the smallest difference. This is sort of an approximation of the arc between them? -- AngleWyrm The C++ hat random selection container: http://home.comcast.net/~anglewyrm/hat.html
