public:
static float DistanceSquared(
Vector4 value1,
Vector4 value2
)

#### Parameters

- value1
- Type: RageVector4

The first vector. - value2
- Type: RageVector4

The second vector.

#### Return Value

Type:

SingleThe squared distance between the two vectors.

Distance squared is the value before taking the square root.
Distance squared can often be used in place of distance if relative comparisons are being made.
For example, consider three points A, B, and C. To determine whether B or C is further from A,
compare the distance between A and B to the distance between A and C. Calculating the two distances
involves two square roots, which are computationally expensive. However, using distance squared
provides the same information and avoids calculating two square roots.
