[Sidefx-houdini-list] Access nurbs parametric uvs

I recently needed to do the same thing where I used the pointdist() expression to get the uv position but I was using this on ~300k points which took about 30 min to calculate.
I ended up using a point cloud to get the uv position instead and it droped my calculation times down from 30min to about 1 min. So if you are using loads of points I would recommend a point cloud.

Thanks to FrankFirsching on the odForce forum who answered my question
one year before I asked it ;)
Now it works with the expressions pointdist combined with unituv.
