drawTorus(torus, varargin)
function varargout = drawTorus(torus, varargin)
%DRAWTORUS Draw a torus (3D ring)
%
%   drawTorus(TORUS)
%   Draws the torus on the current axis. TORUS is given by
%   [XC YC ZY R1 R2 THETA PHI]
%   where (XC YZ ZC) is the center of the torus, R1 is the main radius, R2
%   is the radius of the torus section, and (THETA PHI) is the angle of the
%   torus normal vector (both in degrees).
%
%   Example
%   figure;
%   drawTorus([50 50 50 30 10 30 45]);
%   axis equal;
%
%   See also
%   drawEllipsoid, revolutionSurface, torusMesh
