void gluPartialDisk(GLUquadricObj *qobj, GLdouble innerRadius, GLdouble outerRadius, GLint slices, GLint loops, GLdouble startAngle, GLdouble sweepAngle)
The partial disk has a radius of outerRadius, and contains a concentric circular hole with a radius of innerRadius. If innerRadius is zero, then no hole is generated. The partial disk is subdivided around the z axis into slices (like pizza slices), and also about the z axis into rings (as specified by slices and loops, respectively).
With respect to orientation, the +z side of the partial disk is considered to be outside (see gluQuadricOrientation). This means that if the orientation is set to GLU_OUTSIDE, then any normals generated point along the +z axis. Otherwise, they point along the -z axis.
If texturing is turned on (with gluQuadricTexture), texture coordinates are generated linearly such that where r = outerRadius, the value at (r, 0, 0) is (1, 0.5), at (0, r, 0) it is (0.5, 1), at (-r, 0, 0) it is (0, 0.5), and at (0, -r, 0) it is (0.5, 0).
