I'm creating a C++ 2D program to practice my 2D skills. I'm almost done with everything but I'm stuck on this crap. Is there any formula on how to rotate a shape?


I have a line P1(-1,-1) P2(1,1)

If I rotate it by 45 degrees, I'll get a P1(1,-1) P2(-1,1). By the way, it should not leave its center which is C(0,0).
