[ODE] vector force

The math here is really simple (even I can handle it!).
You've got 2 boxes A and B and you desire a force from A to B with 10
units. Simply subtract the position of B from A to give you a vector
from A to B. Normalize the resultant vector then multiply it by 10.
That's your force vector. Now call dBodyAddForce on box A with those
values. See? No trig involved.
ODE probably includes the appropriate vector functions to do all that,
although I use a separate math package, so I'm not 100% certain of that.

Subject: [ODE] vector force
noob in ode, I try to make a attraction between 2 object. (witch consist
of gluing a force on the second object.)
the only function I found is dBodyAddForce (Box,a,b,c);.
but we have to calculate the a,b,c.
is there any function like that putForce(BoxA,boxB,10) who put a force
from A to B with 10 unit???
what I mean is if
A(xa,yb,zc)// a point
B(xa,yb,zc)// a other point
force = 10 units // the force I wanna applicate on B in the direction of
I don't see how to calculate a, b, c for dBodyAddForce (B,a,b,c);
without sinus and cosinus.(maybe my physics is a little old)
is someone can help me?
