gluNurbsCurve() gluNurbsCurve()[top]NAMEgluNurbsCurve- define the shape of a NURBS curveSYNOPSISvoid gluNurbsCurve( GLUnurbs* nurb, GLint knotCount, GLfloat *knots, GLint stride, GLfloat *control, GLint order, GLenum type );PARAMETERSSpecifies the NURBS object (created with gluNewNurbsRenderer()). Spec‐ ifies the number of knots in knots. knotCount equals the number of control points plus the order. Specifies an array of knotCount nonde‐ creasing knot values. Specifies the offset (as a number of single-pre‐ cision floating-point values) between successive curve control points. Specifies a pointer to an array of control points. The coordinates must agree with type, specified below. Specifies the order of the NURBS curve. order equals degree + 1, hence a cubic curve has an order of 4. Specifies the type of the curve. If this curve is defined within a gluBeginCurve()/gluEndCurve() pair, then the type can be any of the valid one-dimensional evaluator types (such as GL_MAP1_VERTEX_3 or GL_MAP1_COLOR_4). Between a gluBeginTrim()/gluEndTrim() pair, the only valid types are GLU_MAP1_TRIM_2 and GLU_MAP1_TRIM_3.DESCRIPTIONUse gluNurbsCurve() to describe a NURBS curve. When gluNurbsCurve() appears between a gluBeginCurve()/gluEndCurve() pair, it is used to describe a curve to be rendered. Positional, tex‐ ture, and color coordinates are associated by presenting each as a sep‐ arate gluNurbsCurve() between a gluBeginCurve()/gluEndCurve() pair. No more than one call to gluNurbsCurve() for each of color, position, and texture data can be made within a single gluBeginCurve()/gluEndCurve() pair. Exactly one call must be made to describe the position of the curve (a type of GL_MAP1_VERTEX_3 or GL_MAP1_VERTEX_4). When gluNurbsCurve() appears between a gluBeginTrim()/gluEndTrim() pair, it is used to describe a trimming curve on a NURBS surface. If type is GLU_MAP1_TRIM_2, then it describes a curve in two-dimensional (u and v) parameter space. If it is GLU_MAP1_TRIM_3, then it describes a curve in two-dimensional homogeneous (u, v, and w) parameter space. See the gluBeginTrim() reference page for more discussion about trim‐ ming curves.NOTESTo define trim curves which stitch well, use gluPwlCurve().EXAMPLEThe following commands render a textured NURBS curve with normals: gluBeginCurve(nobj); gluNurbsCurve(nobj, ..., GL_MAP1_TEXTURE_COORD_2); gluNurbsCurve(nobj, ..., GL_MAP1_NORMAL); gluNurbsCurve(nobj, ..., GL_MAP1_VERTEX_4); gluEndCurve(nobj);SEE ALSOgluBeginCurve(3), gluBeginTrim(3), gluNewNurbsRenderer(3), gluPwl‐ Curve(3), gluNurbsCurve()
