glTranslate.3G man page

glTranslated, glTranslatef — multiply the current matrix by a translation matrix

C Specification

void glTranslated( GLdouble x,

	GLdouble y,
	GLdouble z )

void glTranslatef( GLfloat x,

	GLfloat y,
	GLfloat z )

Parameters

x, y, z

Specify the x, y, and z coordinates of a translation vector.

Description

glTranslate produces a translation by  (x,y,z). The current matrix (see
glMatrixMode) is multiplied by this translation matrix, with the product replacing the current matrix, as if glMultMatrix were called with the following matrix for its argument:

(100x010y001z0001)

If the matrix mode is either GL_MODELVIEW or GL_PROJECTION, all objects drawn after a call to glTranslate are translated.

Use glPushMatrix and  glPopMatrix to save and restore the untranslated coordinate system.

Errors

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