plane(6)                      Svgalib User Manual                     plane(6)

NAME
       plane - draw a 3 dimensional plane

SYNOPSIS
       plane

DESCRIPTION
       A greyscale-shaded rendered-on-the-fly turbo-prop that you can rotate
       and scale however you like.

       The demo prompts your for a mode to be used and several details. Just
       follow the instructions on the screen and make your selections.

       Once the program runs you can use the following keys:

       <Q> and <A>, <Z> and <X>, <O> and <P>
              to rotate the plane around the space axes.

       <T> and <V>, <F> and <G>, <W> and <S>
              to move up, down, north, south, east, west. (world view only)

       <Space>
              to toggle rendering vs. wire frame.

       <W> and <S>
              to scale in non-world view compilation -- see plane.h

       <1> and <2>
              to change rotation increment.

       <3> through <9>
              to change surface density.

       <R>    to change shading method.

       <C>    to quit the program.

       <I>    to reset the rotation to the startup values.

       This demo is part of svgalib and can be found in the threeDkit/
       subdirectory of the original svgalib distribution. However, it is not
       installed in the system by default, s.t. it is unclear where you can
       find it if your svgalib was installed by some linux distribution. Even
       then, when you have the demo on your system, you probably won't have
       the sources s.t. it is only of limited use for you.

       In case of any such problem, simply get an svgalib distribution from
       the net. You even don't need to install it. Just make in the threeDkit/
       subdirectory. As of this writing, svgalib-1.2.12.tar.gz is the latest
       version and can be retrieved by ftp from sunsite.unc.edu at
       /pub/Linux/libs/graphics and tsx-11.mit.edu at /pub/linux/sources/libs
       which will most probably be mirrored by a site close to you.
