glLoadIdentity — replace the current matrix with the identity matrix

C Specification

void glLoadIdentity(void); 


glLoadIdentity replaces the current matrix with the identity matrix. It is semantically equivalent to calling glLoadMatrix with the identity matrix

( 1 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 1 )

but in some cases it is more efficient.
