generate 3-D plot object for a cylinder
cylinder(c, r, h, capped=boolean, strips=n, options)
center of the base circle of the cylinder
(optional) radius of the cylinder; default is 1
(optional) height of the cylinder; default is 1
(optional) specifies whether the resulting object should be capped; default is true
(optional) number of sides; default is 24
The cylinder command creates a three-dimensional plot data object, which when displayed is a cylinder of height h. The base circle of the cylinder is centered at c, of radius r, and parallel to the xy-plane.
The plot data object produced by the cylinder command can be used in a PLOT3D data structure, or displayed using the plots[display] command.
The cylinder is capped on both ends unless you specify the capped = false option.
The cylinder is constructed of n vertical strips, which can be specified with the strips = n option. The default number of strips is 24.
Remaining arguments are interpreted as options, which are specified as equations of the form option = value. For more information, see plottools and plot3d/options.
