NAME
       ae - Sets the view orientation for the mged display by rotating the eye
       position	about the center of the	viewing	cube.

SYNOPSIS
       ae [-i] {azimuth} {elevation} [twist]

DESCRIPTION
       Set the view orientation	for the	mged display by	rotating the eye
       position	about the center of the	viewing	cube. The eye position is
       determined by the supplied azimuth and elevation	angles (degrees). The
       azimuth angle is	measured in the	xy plane with the positive x direction
       corresponding to	an azimuth of 0o. Positive azimuth angles are measured
       counter-clockwise about the positive z axis. Elevation angles are
       measured	from the xy plane with +90o corresponding to the positive z
       direction and -90 corresponding to the negative z direction. If an
       optional	twist angle is included, the view will be rotated about	the
       viewing direction by the	specified twist	angle. The -i option results
       in the angles supplied being interpreted	as increments.

EXAMPLES
       The examples show how to	change views by	entering azimuth and elevation
       angles, adding a	twist angle, and having	the angles supplied being
       treated as increments.

       Example 1. Top view

       mged> ae	-90 90

       Example 2. Right-hand side view

       mged>ae 270 0

       The view	is from	the right-hand side.

       Example 3. View from a specific azimuth and elevation with a twist
       angle.

       mged>ae 35 25 10

       The view	is from	azimuth	35, elevation 25, with a view rotated by 10
       degrees.

       Example 4. The azimuth and elevation angles supplied are	treated	as
       increments.

       mged>ae -i 0 0 5

       Rotates the current view	through	5 degrees about	the viewing direction.
