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.

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
