float value = 20;
float n = norm(value, 0, 50);
println(n);  // Prints "0.4"

float value = -10;
float n = norm(value, 0, 100);
println(n);  // Prints "-0.1"
Description Normalizes a number from another range into a value between 0 and 1. Identical to map(value, low, high, 0, 1).

Numbers outside of the range are not clamped to 0 and 1, because out-of-range values are often intentional and useful. (See the second example above.)
norm(value, start, stop)
value float: the incoming value to be converted
start float: lower bound of the value's current range
stop float: upper bound of the value's current range
