The prompt specified by message is displayed at bottom of the screen. The user is then allowed to move the cursor from the cursor location to another point in world coordinates, generating a distance value, which is stores in distance .




message is a null-terminated string containing a prompt message. distance is the address of a double that is to receive the distance value
