#local V = <0,1,2>;
#local f = function(x,y,z){ sin(x*V.x) }
but this does:
#local V = <0,1,2>;
#local Vx = V.x;
#local f = function(x,y,z){ sin(x*Vx) }

Vectors don't work in functions. Nothing vectorlike will work, except if your
function is a special vector function (defined as a transform or a spline).
Everything else is scalaronly.
This message is better suited for the "newusers" section.

Maybe it was a way of asking 'Could functions in POVRay 4.0 be general enough
to
handle vectors, and basically anything ou would expect from a regular
computerscience function ?', which is an interesting question, altough probably
an already asked one.
