|See also: GeoEllEccSquared, EllipsoidMinAxFlat|
The function RecipFlattening calculates the reciprocal flattening (1/f) of an ellipsoid:
1/f = a/(a-b)
with a = semimajor axis, and b = semiminor axis.
Version  calculates it from the ellipsoid given by the parameter Ellipsoid, version  calculates the reciprocal flattening from the lengths of the semimajor and semiminor axes (parameters SemiMajorAx and SemiMinorAx), and version  computes it from the squared eccentriticy SqrEcc.
