Spot the identity. ;P

I don't know what construct to use to "catch" the data from stdin...
But I will look.
Hangin' it up for the day  got a day tomorrow, hopefully it's not a disaster

I'll see if I can put together a simplified version minus all the gobbledygook.

Nope.
Just look at the pretty pictures.

Well that's basically it  don't look at the formulae.
The real gist looks to be that matrices encode (mostly) scaling and rotations.
One matrix can be split up (factored) into a rotation matrix, a reverse
rotation matrix (which obviously cancel) and a matrix of scaling factors.
So "How is your data stretched?" It stretches along "x" by this much, "Y" by
this much, and "z" by this much.
And the rotation matrix tells you what direction "x", "y" and "z" are from the
real, cardinal basis vectors of <x, y, z>.
