OpenGL tubing and extrusion library documentation
The GLE Tubing and Extrusion library is an extension to OpenGL for drawing
tubing and extrusions, including surfaces of revolution, sweeps, tubes,
polycones, polycylinders, and helicoids. Generally the extruded surface
is specified with a 2D polyline that is extruded along a 3D path. A local
coordinate system allows for additional flexibility in the primitives
drawn. Extrusions may be texture mapped in a variety of ways.
This package contains documentation and example code.
GLE is a library package of C functions that draw

You can make the examples in this directory by running
make -f Makefile.examples
If this makefile doesn't work for you, you'l need to
get the source, and run configure.
To run a whole sequence of demos, run the shell script
./rundemo This shell script will run them in order
from basic to complex, and print a short explanation
of each demo to stdout. Use the leftmouse to move,
The *.orig.gif images are here because they are visually interesting.
They are screen-shots of an early versin of MesaGL (circa 0.9 or 1.1)
and have some rather interesting rasterization artifacts. I find these
rather visually pleasing, and keep them here for my artistic pleasure.
