function rz = vecrotz(angle)
% 
% VECROTZ: Transformation matrix for a rotation around the z axis. 
% 
% Calling Sequence:
% 
%   rz = vecrotz(angle);
% 
% Parameters:
% 
%   angle   : rotation angle defined in radians
% 
%   rz            : (4x4) Transformation matrix.
% 
% 
% Description:
% 
%   Return the (4x4) Transformation matrix for a rotation about the z axis
%   by the defined angle.
% 
%   The matrix is:
% 
%         
%         
%         
%         
% 
% Examples:
% 
%  Rotate the NURBS line (0.0 0.0 0.0) - (3.0 3.0 3.0) by 45 degrees
%  around the z-axis
% 
%    line = nrbline([0.0 0.0 0.0],[3.0 3.0 3.0]);
%    trans = vecrotz(%pi/4);
%    rline = nrbtform(line, trans);
