The stupid question is the question not asked PerlMonks

 Need Help??
It's too bad that Q isn't a whiz with linear algebra (or matrix multiplications as you put it). Rotations and scaling are linear transformations. For the following examples, assume that A is a 2xn matrix (that is 2 columns and n rows; n is the number of points that you're dealing with).
```Rotation by an angle t:
A' = A * [ [cos t, -sin t][sin t, cos t] ];

Scaling by a factor of x:
A' = A * [ [x, 0][0, x] ];

Translation by dx in the x direction and dy in the y direction
(not actually linear transform, but easily accomplished with matricies
+):
A' = A + [ [dx, dy] ]; ( add dx to each value in the first column and
+dy to each in the second column)
I would help you with skew, but I don't know *how* you want to accomplish this. In colloquial terms, I'd imagine a stretch of some description, but I don't know what kind of parameters you've got.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

• Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
• Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
• Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
• Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
• You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
 For: Use: & & < < > > [ [ ] ]
• Link using PerlMonks shortcuts! What shortcuts can I use for linking?
