NAME
       gluSphere - draw a sphere

C SPECIFICATION
       void gluSphere(GLUquadric* quad, GLdouble radius, GLint slices, GLint stacks);

PARAMETERS
       quad
	   Specifies the quadrics object (created with gluNewQuadric()).

       radius
	   Specifies the radius of the sphere.

       slices
	   Specifies the number of subdivisions around the z axis (similar to lines of
	   longitude).

       stacks
	   Specifies the number of subdivisions along the z axis (similar to lines of latitude).

DESCRIPTION
       gluSphere draws a sphere of the given radius centered around the origin. The sphere is
       subdivided around the z axis into slices and along the z axis into stacks (similar to
       lines of longitude and latitude).

       If the orientation is set to GLU_OUTSIDE (with gluQuadricOrientation()), then any normals
       generated point away from the center of the sphere. Otherwise, they point toward the
       center of the sphere.

       If texturing is turned on (with gluQuadricTexture()), then texture coordinates are
       generated so that t ranges from 0.0 at z = - radius to 1.0 at z = radius (t increases
       linearly along longitudinal lines), and s ranges from 0.0 at the +y axis, to 0.25 at the
       +x axis, to 0.5 at the \-y axis, to 0.75 at the \-x axis, and back to 1.0 at the +y axis.
