Workspace Method rte_losGeometricFromRtePosToRtePos2


The geometric line-of-sight between two points.

The method sets rte_los to the line-of-sight, at rte_pos,
that matches the geometrical propagation path between rte_pos
and rte_pos2.

The standard case should be that rte_pos2 corresponds to a
transmitter, and rte_pos to the receiver/sensor.
