NAME
       gluBeginTrim - delimit a NURBS trimming loop definition

C SPECIFICATION
       void gluBeginTrim(GLUnurbs* nurb);

C SPECIFICATION
       void gluEndTrim(GLUnurbs* nurb);

PARAMETERS
       nurb
	   Specifies the NURBS object (created with gluNewNurbsRenderer()).

DESCRIPTION
       Use gluBeginTrim to mark the beginning of a trimming loop and gluEndTrim() to mark the end
       of a trimming loop. A trimming loop is a set of oriented curve segments (forming a closed
       curve) that define boundaries of a NURBS surface. You include these trimming loops in the
       definition of a NURBS surface, between calls to gluBeginSurface() and gluEndSurface().

       The definition for a NURBS surface can contain many trimming loops. For example, if you
       wrote a definition for a NURBS surface that resembled a rectangle with a hole punched out,
       the definition would contain two trimming loops. One loop would define the outer edge of
       the rectangle; the other would define the hole punched out of the rectangle. The
       definitions of each of these trimming loops would be bracketed by a
       gluBeginTrim/gluEndTrim() pair.

       The definition of a single closed trimming loop can consist of multiple curve segments,
       each described as a piecewise linear curve (see gluPwlCurve()) or as a single NURBS curve
       (see gluNurbsCurve()), or as a combination of both in any order. The only library calls
       that can appear in a trimming loop definition (between the calls to gluBeginTrim and
       gluEndTrim()) are gluPwlCurve() and gluNurbsCurve().

       The area of the NURBS surface that is displayed is the region in the domain to the left of
       the trimming curve as the curve parameter increases. Thus, the retained region of the
       NURBS surface is inside a counterclockwise trimming loop and outside a clockwise trimming
       loop. For the rectangle mentioned earlier, the trimming loop for the outer edge of the
       rectangle runs counterclockwise, while the trimming loop for the punched-out hole runs
       clockwise.

       If you use more than one curve to define a single trimming loop, the curve segments must
       form a closed loop (that is, the endpoint of each curve must be the starting point of the
       next curve, and the endpoint of the final curve must be the starting point of the first
       curve). If the endpoints of the curve are sufficiently close together but not exactly
       coincident, they will be coerced to match. If the endpoints are not sufficiently close, an
       error results (see gluNurbsCallback()).

       If a trimming loop definition contains multiple curves, the direction of the curves must
       be consistent (that is, the inside must be to the left of all of the curves). Nested
       trimming loops are legal as long as the curve orientations alternate correctly. If
       trimming curves are self-intersecting, or intersect one another, an error results.

       If no trimming information is given for a NURBS surface, the entire surface is drawn.

EXAMPLE
       This code fragment defines a trimming loop that consists of one piecewise linear curve,
       and two NURBS curves:

	   gluBeginTrim(nobj);
	      gluPwlCurve(..., GLU_MAP1_TRIM_2);
	      gluNurbsCurve(..., GLU_MAP1_TRIM_2);
	      gluNurbsCurve(..., GLU_MAP1_TRIM_3);
	   gluEndTrim(nobj);
