       plane - draw a 3 dimensional plane


       A greyscale-shaded rendered-on-the-fly turbo-prop that you can rotate and scale however you like.

       The demo prompts your for a mode to be used and several details. Just follow the instructions on the screen and
       make your selections.

       Once the program runs you can use the following keys:

       <Q> and <A>, <Z> and <X>, <O> and <P>
              to rotate the plane around the space axes.

       <T> and <V>, <F> and <G>, <W> and <S>
              to move up, down, north, south, east, west. (world view only)

              to toggle rendering vs. wire frame.

       <W> and <S>
              to scale in non-world view compilation -- see plane.h

       <1> and <2>
              to change rotation increment.

       <3> through <9>
              to change surface density.

       <R>    to change shading method.

       <C>    to quit the program.

       <I>    to reset the rotation to the startup values.

       This demo is part of svgalib and can be found in the threeDkit/ subdirectory of the original svgalib  distribu-
       tion.  However,  it is not installed in the system by default, s.t. it is unclear where you can find it if your
       svgalib was installed by some linux distribution. Even then, when you have the demo on your system, you  proba-
       bly won't have the sources s.t. it is only of limited use for you.

       In  case  of  any such problem, simply get an svgalib distribution from the net. You even don't need to install
       it. Just make in the threeDkit/ subdirectory. As of this writing, svgalib-1.2.12.tar.gz is the  latest  version
       and   can  be  retrieved  by  ftp  from  at  /pub/Linux/libs/graphics  and  at
       /pub/linux/sources/libs which will most probably be mirrored by a site close to you.
