  glMatrixMode - specify which matrix is the current matrix

C Specification

  void glMatrixMode( GLenum mode )


  mode	Specifies which	matrix stack is	the target for subsequent matrix
	operations.  Three values are accepted:	GL_MODELVIEW, GL_PROJECTION,
	and GL_TEXTURE.	 The default value is GL_MODELVIEW.


  glMatrixMode sets the	current	matrix mode.  mode can assume one of three

  GL_MODELVIEW	      Applies subsequent matrix	operations to the modelview
		      matrix stack.

  GL_PROJECTION	      Applies subsequent matrix	operations to the projection
		      matrix stack.

  GL_TEXTURE	      Applies subsequent matrix	operations to the texture
		      matrix stack.


  GL_INVALID_ENUM is generated if mode is not an accepted value.

  GL_INVALID_OPERATION is generated if glMatrixMode is executed	between	the
  execution of glBegin and the corresponding execution of glEnd.
