```GLROTATE(3G)															      GLROTATE(3G)

NAME
glRotated, glRotatef - multiply the current matrix by a rotation matrix

C SPECIFICATION
void glRotated( GLdouble angle,
GLdouble x,
GLdouble y,
GLdouble z )
void glRotatef( GLfloat angle,
GLfloat x,
GLfloat y,
GLfloat z )

PARAMETERS
angle  Specifies the angle of rotation, in degrees.

x, y, z
Specify the x, y, and z coordinates of a vector, respectively.

DESCRIPTION
glRotate produces a rotation of angle degrees around the vector (x,y,z).  The current matrix (see glMatrixMode) is multiplied by a rotation
matrix with the product replacing the current matrix, as if glMultMatrix were called with the following matrix as its argument:

x2(1-c)+c  xy(1-c)-zs xz(1-c)+ys 0
(yx(1-c)+zs y2(1-c)+c  yz(1-c)-xs 0)
xz(1-c)-ys yz(1-c)+xs z2(1-c)+c  0
0	  0	     0	    1
Where c=cos(angle), s=sin(angle), and ||(x,y,z)||=1 (if not, the GL will normalize this vector).

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.

NOTES
This rotation follows the right-hand rule, so if the vector (x,y,z) points toward the user, the rotation will be counterclockwise.

ERRORS
GL_INVALID_OPERATION is generated if glRotate is executed between the execution of glBegin and the corresponding execution of glEnd.

NAME
glRotate - multiply the current matrix by a rotation matrix

C SPECIFICATION
void glRotated(GLdouble angle, GLdouble x, GLdouble y, GLdouble z);

void glRotatef(GLfloat angle, GLfloat x, GLfloat y, GLfloat z);

PARAMETERS
angle
Specifies the angle of rotation, in degrees.

x, y, z
Specify the x, y, and z coordinates of a vector, respectively.

DESCRIPTION
glRotate produces a rotation of angle degrees around the vector x y z. The current matrix (see glMatrixMode()) is multiplied by a rotation
matrix with the product replacing the current matrix, as if glMultMatrix() were called with the following matrix as its argument:

x 2  1 - c + c x  y  1 - c - z  s x  z  1 - c + y  s 0 y  x  1 - c + z  s y 2  1 - c + c y  z  1 - c - x  s 0 x	z  1 - c - y  s y  z  1 -
c + x  s z 2  1 - c + c 0 0 0 0 1

Where c = cos  angle, s = sin  angle, and x y z = 1 (if not, the GL will normalize this vector).

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.

NOTES
This rotation follows the right-hand rule, so if the vector x y z points toward the user, the rotation will be counterclockwise.

ERRORS
GL_INVALID_OPERATION is generated if glRotate is executed between the execution of glBegin() and the corresponding execution of glEnd().
