vecrotx

PURPOSE ^

SYNOPSIS ^

function rx = vecrotx(angle)

DESCRIPTION ^

 
 VECROTX: Transformation matrix for a rotation around the x axis. 
 
 Calling Sequence:
 
   rx = vecrotx(angle);
 
 Parameters:
 
   angle        : rotation angle defined in radians
 
   rx        : (4x4) Transformation matrix.
 
 
 Description:
 
   Return the (4x4) Transformation matrix for a rotation about the x axis
   by the defined angle.
 
   The matrix is:
 
         [ 1         0            0          0]
         [ 0     cos(angle)  -sin(angle)     0]
         [ 0     sin(angle)   cos(angle)     0]
         [ 0         0            0          1]
 
 Examples:
 
    Rotate the NURBS line (0.0 0.0 0.0) - (3.0 3.0 3.0) by 45 degrees
    around the x-axis
 
    line = nrbline([0.0 0.0 0.0],[3.0 3.0 3.0]);
    trans = vecrotx(%pi/4);
    rline = nrbtform(line, trans);
