    Transformation matrix problem!

    hi... i need help about transformation, i mean rotation object.
    i want to rotate object without glRotatef, so i multiple the points and matrix
    rotate x
    1 0 0 | | x | | x
    0 cos -sin |X | y |=| cos * y + (-sin)*z
    0 sin cos | | z | | sin * y + cos * z

    my line program
    double RadTheta=theta*3.14159265358979323846/180.0;

    double CosRadTheta=cos(RadTheta);
    double SinRadTheta=sin(RadTheta);

    for (unsigned int i=1;i<=o->nPoints;i++){


    the problem is, the result is not corect. my object not rotate corectly. please help me... what i must do?
    i have change degree to radian (angle*3,14.../180).

    You fall prey for a very basic algorithmic mistake mathematicians usually make: you change the y coordinate but then use it again to compute the z coordinate, where you should have used the old value. You should use a temporary variable that will store the old y value, like

    Code :
    old_y = y
    // compute new y
    // compute new z, with old_y
