quad  Specifies the quadrics object (created with gluNewQuadric). 
base  Specifies the radius of the cylinder at z = 0. 
top  Specifies the radius of the cylinder at z = height. 
height  Specifies the height of the cylinder. 
slices  Specifies the number of subdivisions around the z axis. 
stacks  Specifies the number of subdivisions along the z axis. 
gluCylinder draws a cylinder oriented along the z axis. The base of the cylinder is placed at z = 0, and the top at z=height. Like a sphere, a cylinder is subdivided around the z axis into slices, and along the z axis into stacks.Note that if top is set to 0.0, this routine generates a cone.
If the orientation is set to GLU_OUTSIDE (with gluQuadricOrientation), then any generated normals point away from the z axis. Otherwise, they point toward the z axis.
If texturing is turned on (with gluQuadricTexture), then texture coordinates are generated so that t ranges linearly from 0.0 at z = 0 to 1.0 at z = height, and s ranges from 0.0 at the +y axis, to 0.25 at the +x axis, to 0.5 at the y axis, to 0.75 at the x axis, and back to 1.0 at the +y axis.
