glRotate — multiply the current matrix by a rotation matrix
void glRotated( | GLdouble angle, |
GLdouble x, | |
GLdouble y, | |
GLdouble z) ; |
void glRotatef( | GLfloat angle, |
GLfloat x, | |
GLfloat y, | |
GLfloat z) ; |
angle
Specifies the angle of rotation, in degrees.
x
, y
, z
Specify the x, y, and z coordinates of a vector, respectively.
glRotate
produces a rotation of angle
degrees around
the vector
Where
If the matrix mode is either GL_MODELVIEW
or GL_PROJECTION
,
all objects drawn after glRotate
is called are rotated.
Use glPushMatrix and glPopMatrix to save and restore
the unrotated coordinate system.
This rotation follows the right-hand rule, so
if the vector
GL_INVALID_OPERATION
is generated if glRotate
is executed between the execution of glBegin
and the corresponding execution of glEnd.
