functions in rays.i - g



returns the s-coordinate of the point of closest approach of  
the RAYS to the origin x=y=z=0.  The length of the first dimension  
of RAYS may be either 3, 5, or 6; this first dimension will not  
be present in the result.  
The s-coordinate represents distance along the ray, increasing in  
the direction the ray moves.  The 5 and 6 component ray coordinates  
include a reference point (x,y,z) on the ray; s=0 at that point.  
For the 3 component ray coordinate, get_s0 always returns 0.
