NAME
glPushMatrix, glPopMatrix
 push and pop the current matrix stack
C SPECIFICATION
void glPushMatrix( void )
C SPECIFICATION
void glPopMatrix( void )
DESCRIPTION
There is a stack of matrices for each of the matrix modes.
In GL_MODELVIEW mode,
the stack depth is at least 32.
In the other modes,
GL_COLOR, const(PROJECTION), and GL_TEXTURE,
the depth is at least 2.
The current matrix in any mode is the matrix on the top of the stack
for that mode.
glPushMatrix pushes the current matrix stack down by one,
duplicating the current matrix.
That is,
after a glPushMatrix call,
the matrix on top of the stack is identical to the one below it.
glPopMatrix pops the current matrix stack,
replacing the current matrix with the one below it on the stack.
Initially, each of the stacks contains one matrix, an identity matrix.
It is an error to push a full matrix stack,
or to pop a matrix stack that contains only a single matrix.
In either case, the error flag is set
and no other change is made to GL state.
ERRORS
GL_STACK_OVERFLOW is generated if glPushMatrix is called while
the current matrix stack is full.
GL_STACK_UNDERFLOW is generated if glPopMatrix is called while
the current matrix stack contains only a single matrix.
GL_INVALID_OPERATION is generated if glPushMatrix or glPopMatrix
is executed between the execution of glBegin
and the corresponding execution of glEnd.
