gluTessBeginPolygon - delimit a polygon description
void gluTessBeginPolygon( GLUtesselator* tess,
GLvoid* data )
tess Specifies the tessellation object (created with gluNewTess).
data Specifies a pointer to user polygon data.
gluTessBeginPolygon and gluTessEndPolygon delimit the definition of a convex, concave or self-intersecting polygon. Within each
gluTessBeginPolygon/gluTessEndPolygon pair, there must be one or more calls to gluTessBeginContour/gluTessEndContour. Within each contour,
there are zero or more calls to gluTessVertex. The vertices specify a closed contour (the last vertex of each contour is automatically
linked to the first). See the gluTessVertex, gluTessBeginContour, and gluTessEndContour reference pages for more details.
data is a pointer to a user-defined data structure. If the appropriate callback(s) are specified (see gluTessCallback), then this pointer
is returned to the callback function(s). Thus, it is a convenient way to store per-polygon information.
Once gluTessEndPolygon is called, the polygon is tessellated, and the resulting triangles are described through callbacks. See
gluTessCallback for descriptions of the callback functions.
A quadrilateral with a triangular hole in it can be described as follows:
gluTessVertex(tobj, v1, v1);
gluTessVertex(tobj, v2, v2);
gluTessVertex(tobj, v3, v3);
gluTessVertex(tobj, v4, v4);
gluTessVertex(tobj, v5, v5);
gluTessVertex(tobj, v6, v6);
gluTessVertex(tobj, v7, v7);
