plane(6)		      Svgalib User Manual		      plane(6)

       plane - draw a 3	dimensional plane


       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)

	      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/	subdi-
       rectory of the original svgalib distribution. However, it  is  not  in-
       stalled 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  at
       /pub/Linux/libs/graphics	and at  /pub/linux/sources/libs
       which will most probably	be mirrored by a site close to you.
