glLoadIdentity.3G - Man Page

replace the current matrix with the identity matrix

C Specification

void glLoadIdentity( void )


glLoadIdentity replaces the current matrix with the identity matrix. It is semantically equivalent to calling glLoadMatrix with the identity matrix


but in some cases it is more efficient.


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