ROTATING_CUBE_DISPLAY_OPENGL
Animation with OpenGL


ROTATING_CUBE_DISPLAY_OPENGL, a C++ code which displays a cube with colored corners that slowly rotates. By clicking the left, middle, or right mouse buttons, the user can change the axis of rotation.

Usage:

rotating_cube_display_opengl
displays the rotating cube. Successive mouse clicks alternate the axis of rotation from the X, to the Y, to the Z axis and back again.
