#debug can output user-defined string, but how can I output the value of a
variable. For example,

#declare location1 = max_extent(object);

how can I output the calculated vector of location1 to be read on the terminal
output?

I found the solution if others encounter the same problem, The solution is the
set of string functions which can be found at
https://www.povray.org/documentation/view/3.6.1/232/

In my case, vstr can transform a vector into a string.
