Example text

The linked list at that location is searched for the key. If the key is found, the insertion function returns a pointer to the hash set’s version of the key. In this sense, the insertion acts like a find operation. If the key does not exist in the list, a new node is added to the front of the list, the input key is assigned to the node, and a pointer to the hash set’s version of the key is returned. In most cases, the assignment operator for TKEY performs a deep copy so that the hash set has an identical copy of the input.

If V is a 3 × 1 vector, then the result of rotating it by a matrix R is RV. It is important to understand this convention, and others, when dealing with a graphics API. OpenGL, for example, uses the opposite convention: V would be considered to be 1 × 3 and would be multiplied on the right by a matrix, VM. After the new rotation matrix is computed, the 4 × 4 matrix (stored as a linear array of 16 numbers) must be reassigned in order for the DrawIt function to correctly set the transformation. The OpenGL convention already exposes itself here.

This is accomplished using the same function described previously, gluLookAt. Let me remind you why I went to great pains to construct, and describe, an application that (1) draws a single triangle using vertex colors, (2) allows the triangle to move, and (3) allows the camera to move. ” As you likely have observed, the application is quite complicated and long. This example should already convince you of the necessity to think of a graphics application as a collection of systems that should not be hard-coded into a single application source file.
