glMatrixMode(3)                                              glMatrixMode(3)




NAME

       glMatrixMode - specify which matrix is the current matrix



C SPECIFICATION

       void glMatrixMode( GLenum mode )



PARAMETERS

       mode  Specifies  which matrix stack is the target for subsequent matrix
             operations.    Three   values   are    accepted:    GL_MODELVIEW,
             GL_PROJECTION,    and   GL_TEXTURE.    The   initial   value   is
             GL_MODELVIEW.

             Additionally,  if  the  GL_ARB_imaging  extension  is  supported,
             GL_COLOR is also accepted.


DESCRIPTION

       glMatrixMode sets the current matrix mode.  mode can assume one of four
       values:

       GL_MODELVIEW             Applies subsequent matrix  operations  to  the
                                modelview matrix stack.

       GL_PROJECTION            Applies  subsequent  matrix  operations to the
                                projection matrix stack.

       GL_TEXTURE               Applies subsequent matrix  operations  to  the
                                texture matrix stack.

       GL_COLOR                 Applies  subsequent  matrix  operations to the
                                color matrix stack.

       To find out which matrix stack is currently the target  of  all  matrix
       operations,  call glGet with argument GL_MATRIX_MODE. The initial value
       is GL_MODELVIEW.


ERRORS

       GL_INVALID_ENUM is generated if mode is not an accepted value.

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


ASSOCIATED GETS

       glGet with argument GL_MATRIX_MODE
