well I am going back to an asteroids like game. I am trying to get a space ship figure to rotate around a point and move up like in asteroids.

void Draw_Ship()
{
glClear(GL_COLOR_BUFFER_BIT|GL_DEPTH_BUFFER_BIT);
glMatrixMode(GL_MODELVIEW);

glPushMatrix();

glTranslatef(5.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f);

glRotatef(angle, 0.0f, 0.0f, 1.0f);

glTranslatef(0.0f, up, 0.0f);

draw_ship();

glPopMatrix();

glPushMatrix();

glTranslatef(-5.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f);

glRotatef(angle_two, 0.0f, 0.0f, 1.0f);

draw_ship_two();

glPopMatrix();

glutSwapBuffers();
}

here is the main code I am working on. let me know if you need more code.

Looks like a good start.

You need to accumulate transformations. At each update, transform the "forward" motion by the current rotation then add the result to the current position.

well I have worked on my code here is what I have so far.

void Draw_Ship()
{
glClear(GL_COLOR_BUFFER_BIT|GL_DEPTH_BUFFER_BIT);
glMatrixMode(GL_MODELVIEW);

glPushMatrix();

x = cos(angle)*up;
y = sin(angle)*up;

glTranslatef(-x, -y, 0.0f);

glRotatef(angle, 0.0f, 0.0f, 1.0f);

glTranslatef(x, y, 0.0f);

glTranslatef(x, y, 0.0f);

draw_ship();

glPopMatrix();

glPushMatrix();

glTranslatef(-5.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f);

glRotatef(angle_two, 0.0f, 0.0f, 1.0f);

draw_ship_two();

glPopMatrix();

glutSwapBuffers();
}
