NAME
       p - Provides precise control over primitive editing operations that
       would normally be done using the	mouse or knobs.

SYNOPSIS
       p {value1} [value2 value3]

DESCRIPTION
       Provides	precise	control	over primitive editing operations that would
       normally	be done	using the mouse	or knobs. For example, a shape rotate
       may be performed	by selecting rotate from the primitive edit menu, then
       providing the rotation angles with the p	command. A command of p	0 30 0
       would rotate the	edited shape through 30<degree>	about the y axis.
       Similarly, many of the individual parameters of the edited shape	may be
       set exactly using the p command.	If the
	scale H	menu item is selected while editing a TGC, then	the value1
       supplied	with a p command specifies the actual length of	the height
       vector for that TGC. This method	is the recommended technique to	set
       precise values for shape	parameters. The	translate and rotobj commands
       provide a similar capability for	object editing.

EXAMPLES
       The example shows the use of the	p command to precisely set the
       currently selected shape	parameter of the currently edited shape.

       Example 1. Set the currently selected shape parameter of	the currently
       edited shape.

       mged>p 30

       Sets the	currently selected shape parameter of the currently edited
       shape to	30 units.
