```glOrtho(3)                                                        glOrtho(3)

```

## NAME

```       glOrtho - multiply the current matrix with an orthographic matrix

```

## C SPECIFICATION

```       void glOrtho( GLdouble left,
GLdouble right,
GLdouble bottom,
GLdouble top,
GLdouble zNear,
GLdouble zFar )

```

## PARAMETERS

```       left, right Specify  the  coordinates  for  the left and right vertical
clipping planes.

bottom, top Specify the coordinates for the bottom and  top  horizontal
clipping planes.

zNear, zFar Specify the distances to the nearer and farther depth clip-
ping planes.  These values are negative if the plane is  to
be behind the viewer.

```

## DESCRIPTION

```       glOrtho describes a transformation that produces a parallel projection.
The current matrix (see glMatrixMode) is multiplied by this matrix  and
the  result replaces the current matrix, as if glMultMatrix were called
with the following matrix as its argument:

2
------------       0              0              tx
right - left

2
0         ------------        0              ty
top - bottom

-2
0              0         ------------        tz
zFar-zNear

0              0              0              1

where

tx = - (right + left) / (right - left)

ty = - (top + bottom) / (top - bottom)

tz = - (zFar + zNear) / (zFar - zNear)

Typically,  the  matrix  mode  is  GL_PROJECTION,  and  (left,  bottom,
-zNear)  and (right, top,  -zNear) specify the points on the near clip-
ping plane that are mapped to the lower left and upper right corners of
the  window,  respectively,  assuming that the eye is located at (0, 0,
0).  -zFar specifies the location of  the  far  clipping  plane.   Both
zNear and zFar can be either positive or negative.

Use glPushMatrix and glPopMatrix to save and restore the current matrix
stack.

```

## ERRORS

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

```

## ASSOCIATED GETS

```       glGet with argument GL_MATRIX_MODE
glGet with argument GL_COLOR_MATRIX
glGet with argument GL_MODELVIEW_MATRIX
glGet with argument GL_PROJECTION_MATRIX
glGet with argument GL_TEXTURE_MATRIX
