         Base :: f(),
         Top :: f(),
         Height :: f(),
         Slices :: i(),
         Stacks :: i()) ->

glu:cylinder/6 draws a cylinder oriented along the z axis. The base of the cylinder is placed at z = 0 and the top at z=height. Like a sphere, a cylinder is subdivided around the z axis into slices and along the z axis into stacks.

External documentation.

deleteQuadric(Quad :: i()) -> ok

glu:deleteQuadric/1 destroys the quadrics object (created with glu:newQuadric/0) and frees any memory it uses. Once glu:deleteQuadric/1 has been called, Quad cannot be used again.

External documentation.

disk(Quad :: i(),
     Inner :: f(),
     Outer :: f(),
     Slices :: i(),
     Loops :: i()) ->
        ok

glu:disk/5 renders a disk on the z = 0 plane. The disk has a radius of Outer and contains a concentric circular hole with a radius of Inner. If Inner is 0, then no hole is generated. The disk is subdivided around the z axis into slices (like pizza slices) and also about the z axis into rings (as specified by Slices and Loops, respectively).

External documentation.

errorString(Error :: enum()) -> string()

glu:errorString/1 produces an error string from a GL or GLU error code. The string is in ISO Latin 1 format. For example, glu:errorString/1(?GLU_OUT_OF_MEMORY) returns the string out of memory.

External documentation.

getString(Name :: enum()) -> string()

glu:getString/1 returns a pointer to a static string describing the GLU version or the GLU extensions that are supported.

External documentation.

lookAt(EyeX, EyeY, EyeZ, CenterX, CenterY, CenterZ, UpX, UpY, UpZ) ->
          ok
Types:

EyeX = EyeY = EyeZ = CenterX = CenterY = CenterZ = UpX = UpY = UpZ = f()

glu:lookAt/9 creates a viewing matrix derived from an eye point, a reference point indicating the center of the scene, and an UP vector.

External documentation.

newQuadric() -> i()

glu:newQuadric/0 creates and returns a pointer to a new quadrics object. This object must be referred to when calling quadrics rendering and control functions. A return value of 0 means that there is not enough memory to allocate the object.

External documentation.

ortho2D(Left :: f(), Right :: f(), Bottom :: f(), Top :: f()) ->
           ok

glu:ortho2D/4 sets up a two-dimensional orthographic viewing region. This is equivalent to calling gl:ortho/6 with near=-1 and far=1.

External documentation.

partialDisk(Quad, Inner, Outer, Slices, Loops, Start, Sweep) -> ok
Types:

Quad = i()
Inner = Outer = f()
Slices = Loops = i()
Start = Sweep = f()

glu:partialDisk/7 renders a partial disk on the z=0 plane. A partial disk is similar to a full disk, except that only the subset of the disk from Start through Start + Sweep is included (where 0 degrees is along the +f2yf axis, 90 degrees along the +x axis, 180 degrees along the -y axis, and 270 degrees along the -x axis).

External documentation.

perspective(Fovy :: f(), Aspect :: f(), ZNear :: f(), ZFar :: f()) ->
               ok

glu:perspective/4 specifies a viewing frustum into the world coordinate system. In general, the aspect ratio in glu:perspective/4 should match the aspect ratio of the associated viewport. For example, aspect=2.0 means the viewer's angle of view is twice as wide in x as it is in y. If the viewport is twice as wide as it is tall, it displays the image without distortion.

pickMatrix(X :: f(),
           Y :: f(),
           DelX :: f(),
           DelY :: f(),
           Viewport :: {i(), i(), i(), i()}) ->
              ok

glu:pickMatrix/5 creates a projection matrix that can be used to restrict drawing to a small region of the viewport. This is typically useful to determine what objects are being drawn near the cursor. Use glu:pickMatrix/5 to restrict drawing to a small region around the cursor. Then, enter selection mode (with gl:renderMode/1) and rerender the scene. All primitives that would have been drawn near the cursor are identified and stored in the selection buffer.

project(ObjX, ObjY, ObjZ, Model, Proj, View) ->
           {i(), WinX :: f(), WinY :: f(), WinZ :: f()}
Types:

ObjX = ObjY = ObjZ = f()
Model = Proj = matrix()
View = {i(), i(), i(), i()}

glu:project/6 transforms the specified object coordinates into window coordinates using Model, Proj, and View. The result is stored in WinX, WinY, and WinZ. A return value of ?GLU_TRUE indicates success, a return value of ?GLU_FALSE indicates failure.

quadricDrawStyle(Quad :: i(), Draw :: enum()) -> ok

glu:quadricDrawStyle/2 specifies the draw style for quadrics rendered with Quad. The legal values are as follows:

quadricNormals(Quad :: i(), Normal :: enum()) -> ok

glu:quadricNormals/2 specifies what kind of normals are desired for quadrics rendered with Quad. The legal values are as follows:

External documentation.

quadricOrientation(Quad :: i(), Orientation :: enum()) -> ok

glu:quadricOrientation/2 specifies what kind of orientation is desired for quadrics rendered with Quad. The Orientation values are as follows:

External documentation.

quadricTexture(Quad :: i(), Texture :: 0 | 1) -> ok

glu:quadricTexture/2 specifies if texture coordinates should be generated for quadrics rendered with Quad. If the value of Texture is ?GLU_TRUE, then texture coordinates are generated, and if Texture is ?GLU_FALSE, they are not. The initial value is ?GLU_FALSE.

scaleImage(Format, WIn, HIn, TypeIn, DataIn, WOut, HOut, TypeOut,
           DataOut) ->

WIn = HIn = i()
TypeIn = enum()
DataIn = binary()
WOut = HOut = i()
TypeOut = enum()

glu:scaleImage/9 scales a pixel image using the appropriate pixel store modes to unpack data from the source image and pack data into the destination image.

External documentation.

sphere(Quad :: i(), Radius :: f(), Slices :: i(), Stacks :: i()) ->
          ok

glu:sphere/4 draws a sphere of the given radius centered around the origin. The sphere is subdivided around the z axis into slices and along the z axis into stacks (similar to lines of longitude and latitude).

External documentation.

tesselate(Normal, Vs :: [Vs]) -> {Triangles, VertexPos}
Types:

Normal = Vs = vertex()
Triangles = [integer()]
VertexPos = binary()

Triangulates a polygon, the polygon is specified by a Normal and Vs a list of vertex positions.

The function returns a list of indices of the vertices and a binary (64bit native float) containing an array of vertex positions, it starts with the vertices in Vs and may contain newly created vertices in the end.

             {i(), ObjX :: f(), ObjY :: f(), ObjZ :: f()}
unProject4(WinX, WinY, WinZ, ClipW, Model, Proj, View, NearVal,
           FarVal) ->
              {i(),
               ObjX :: f(),
               ObjY :: f(),
               ObjZ :: f(),
               ObjW :: f()}
Types:

WinX = WinY = WinZ = ClipW = f()
Model = Proj = matrix()
View = {i(), i(), i(), i()}
NearVal = FarVal = f()

glu:unProject/6 maps the specified window coordinates into object coordinates using Model, Proj, and View. The result is stored in ObjX, ObjY, and ObjZ. A return value of ?GLU_TRUE indicates success; a return value of ?GLU_FALSE indicates failure.
