Return distance covered by the viewpoint

I am quite new to Vizard and thus far things have gone quite smoothly, but now I seem to be stuck at something which I couldn't find an answer to!

Is there a straight forward way of returning the distance a "player" has covered between two events/objects? Basically tracking how many meters were passed by the viewpoint? Something like:

start tracking
end tracking
return distance covered

I was searching quite a lot in the documentation/forum, but I am probably not using the proper keywords or terminology.

You can get the distance between any two points using the vizmat.Distance command. To calculate the total distance covered you could register a function with vizact.ontimer that calculates distance over small time intervals and add those up.
