GLPOLYGONOFFSET(3G)			  OpenGL Manual 		      GLPOLYGONOFFSET(3G)

NAME
       glPolygonOffset - set the scale and units used to calculate depth values

C SPECIFICATION
       void glPolygonOffset(GLfloat factor, GLfloat units);

PARAMETERS
       factor
	   Specifies a scale factor that is used to create a variable depth offset for each
	   polygon. The initial value is 0.

       units
	   Is multiplied by an implementation-specific value to create a constant depth offset.
	   The initial value is 0.

DESCRIPTION
       When GL_POLYGON_OFFSET_FILL, GL_POLYGON_OFFSET_LINE, or GL_POLYGON_OFFSET_POINT is
       enabled, each fragment's depth value will be offset after it is interpolated from the
       depth values of the appropriate vertices. The value of the offset is factor x DZ + r x
       units, where DZ is a measurement of the change in depth relative to the screen area of the
       polygon, and r is the smallest value that is guaranteed to produce a resolvable offset for
       a given implementation. The offset is added before the depth test is performed and before
       the value is written into the depth buffer.

       glPolygonOffset is useful for rendering hidden-line images, for applying decals to
       surfaces, and for rendering solids with highlighted edges.
