```Sorry,

The actual function is

vprange[br_] := ({-1, 1} #) & /@ (br/(2.0 Max[br]))
Print["for box ratios  ", N[#], " The view point  is ",   vprange[#]] & /@
{{1, 1, .4}, {1, 1, 1}, {1, 2, 1/2}};

BTW,  in page  196  of  "The Mathematica Graphics Book - Cameron Smith &
Nancy Blanchman  - 1995", (for v 2.2),  there is the following function
which relates 'BoxRatios to ViewPoint'

vprange[br_] := ({-1, 1} #) & /@ (b r/(2.0 Max[br]))

Print["for box ratios  ", N[#], " The view point  is ",    vprange[#]] & /@
{{1, 1, .4}, {1, 1, 1}, {1, 2, 1/2}};

I found this function while trying to extract the ViewPoint (resulting)
setting on a 3D plot after having manipulate it interactively. I wanted to
restore the point view to a convenient "starting" setting by clicking on an
ad-hoc reset button.

I could not spend much time on it since I was unable to make it work and
thought that something had been changed since 1995.

Any suggestion would be appreciate.

Regards.

<The problem is that the behavior of Mathematica with respect to the display
of Graphics has changed since Nancy wrote her book. The display of graphics
used to be a side <effect and the notebook output was uninteresting and so
was suppressed with a ";".  Now the display is the directly generated output
and you no longer want to suppress it. So <just use (without the terminating
<semicolon):
