Hellos, im wondering about how i can use glRotate(); and glTranslate(); so that it does not continuously move but will rotate just few degrees then stop, or move a small distance then stop. Thanks

As you no doubt guessed im very new to OpenGL, im still trying to figure out how everything works :-/ .

Currently when i use glRotatef(1,1,1,1); it continuously rotates the cube. I want it to only do half a rotation then stop, so im wondering if it is possible to do this with glRotatef() or if there is another function i need to use.

Similarly with glTranslatef(), i'd like it to move the cube along the X axis for a specific distance and then stop. Currently the cube moves non-stop.

Thanks once again
