DESCRIPTION
vpWindow is used to multiply the current projection matrix by a perspective or orthographic projection matrix. The new projection matrix is defined by the coordinates of six clipping planes in the eye coordinate system (see vpCurrentMatrix(3)). The matrix maps the points (left, bottom, near) and (right, top, near) to the lower left and upper right corners of the clipping window. For an alternative means of specifying the projection matrix, see vpWindowPHIGS(3).Currently, only orthographic projections are supported. Perspective projections will be added in a future release.
The matrix for parallel projections is:

A 0 0 D
0 B 0 E
0 0 C F
0 0 0 1
A = 2 / (right  left)
B = 2 / (top  bottom)
C = 2 / (far  near)
D = (left + right) / (left  right)
E = (bottom + top) / (bottom  top)
F = (near + far) / (near  far)
The matrix is multiplied into the projection matrix, even if the projection matrix is not the current matrix. By default, the matrix is postmultiplied (N = N*m where N is the current matrix and m is the argument to vpMultMatrix). The VP_CONCAT_MODE option to vpSeti can be used to select premultiplication. The default window is a parallel projection with left = bottom = near = 0.5, and right = top = far = 0.5.
STATE VARIABLES
The current matrix concatenation parameters can be retrieved with the following state variable codes (see vpGeti(3)): VP_CONCAT_MODE.ERRORS
The normal return value is VP_OK. The following error return values are possible: VPERROR_BAD_VALUE
 The clipping plane coordinates are invalid (left >= right, etc.).
 VPERROR_BAD_OPTION
 The type argument is invalid.
