pointPosition [-local] [-world] [object]

pointPosition is undoable, NOT queryable, and NOT editable.

This command returns the world or local space position for any type of point object. Valid selection items are: - curve and surface CVs - poly vertices - lattice points - particles - curve and surface edit points - curve and surface parameter points - poly uvs - rotate/scale/joint pivots - selection handles - locators, param locators and arc length locators

It works on the selected object or you can specify the object in the command. By default, if no flag is specified then the world position is returned.
