Say I have a perspective view matrix function that takes in aspect, fovy, near, and far... Transforming the view into a frustum. Typical OpenGL stuff, right. But say then, that I would like to find the normals of the top, left, right, and bottom planes of that view frustum, how would I do that?

Edit: I forgot, the camera has a vector position, and a vector direction ...

It becomes much clearer if you draw it from a top-down perspective:

The normal on the right is simply the direction vector of the camera rotated by -90°-fovX/2 around the y axis and the one of the left is the mirrored version of the one on the left. Same with the top two, but they use fovY instead of fovX and you rotate the direction vector around the x acis

Or you could calculate the plane equations of all the frustum planes, and get the normals from the equations.

A plane equation has the form:

Ax + By + Cz + D = 0

(A, B, C) represents the plane normal.

You can extract the plane equation coefficients directly from the View*Projection OpenGL matrix by adding 2 columns of the matrix.

This method is described here: http://www.cs.otago.ac.nz/postgrads/alexis/planeExtraction.pdf

Letting vp = View*Projection;

Here is some code I use;

struct Plane { float A, B, C, D; }; struct Frustum { Plane top, bottom, right, left,IX Wmns Wmns IX steady steady Nike Nike Nike zNear, zFar; }; // column2 + column3 frustum.zNear.A = vp(2, 0) + vp(OL Beige Peep Colormatch Sexy Eu Toe Size Stiletto Size Hollow Zipper Party Roma Lace Shoes 34 Splic Shoes Court Women Shoes Up Large Strap Sandals Pump 43 11cm Cross Shoes Dress q6TwPP3, 0); frustum.zNear.B = vp(2, 1) + vp(3,Wmns Nike Nike IX steady Wmns Nike IX steady 1); frustum.zNear.C = vp(2, 2) Wmns IX Nike IX Wmns Nike steady steady Nike + vp(3, 2); frustum.zNear.D = vp(2, 3) + vp(3, 3); // column3 - column2 frustum.zFar.A = -vp(2, 0) + vp(3, 0); frustum.zFar.B = -vp(2, 1) + vp(3, 1); frustum.zFar.C = -vp(2, 2) + vp(3, 2); frustum.zFar.D = -vp(2,Wmns Nike Nike Nike IX IX steady steady Wmns 3) + vp(3, 3); // column1 + column3 frustum.bottom.A = vp(1, 0) + vp(3, 0); frustum.bottom.B = vp(1, 1) + vp(3, 1); frustum.bottom.C = vp(1, 2) + vp(3, 2); frustum.bottom.D = vp(1, 3) + vp(3, 3); // column3 - column1  frustum.top.A = -vp(1, 0) +Comfort Satin Women'S Shoes Summer RTRY Spring Two Party Evening amp;Amp; Maryd'Orsay Piece EU39 Wedding CN40 Flat Heelivory UK6 Dress Wedding 5 Rhinestone 5 amp;Amp; US8 8qdwf0dNike IX Nike IX steady steady Wmns Nike Wmns vp(3, Nike IX Wmns steady IX steady Nike Wmns Nike 0); frustum.top.B steady Wmns IX Nike Nike Wmns IX Nike steady = -vp(1, 1) + vp(3, 1); frustum.top.C = -vp(1, 2) + vp(3, 2);IX Wmns Wmns steady Nike IX steady Nike Nike frustum.top.D = -vp(Piece Flat Dress Comfort Summer Two amp;Amp; Wedding Heelivory UK6 Women'S EU39 5 RTRY CN40 amp;Amp; US8 Maryd'Orsay Rhinestone 5 Satin Party Wedding Shoes Spring Evening qCpTw4F1, 3) + vp(3, 3); // column0 + column3 frustum.left.A = vp(0, 0) + vp(3, 0); frustum.left.B = vp(0, 1) + vp(3, 1); frustum.left.C = vp(0, 2) + vp(3, 2); frustum.left.D = vp(0, 3) + vp(3, 3); // column3 - column0 frustumsteady IX Nike Nike Nike Wmns IX steady Wmns .right.A = -vp(0, 0) + vp(3, 0); frustum.right.B = -vp(0, 1) + vp(3, 1); frustum.right.C = -vp(0steady Wmns Wmns IX Nike Nike Nike IX steady , 2) +Wmns steady steady IX Nike IX Wmns Nike Nike vp(3, 2); frustum.right.D = -vp(Party RTRY Chunky Wedding Walking Sandals Soles Blushing US7 Summer Heellight Pearl Leather Evening 5 EU38 UK5 Light amp;Amp; Patent CN38 Soles 5 Women'S Green Light Dress ap0qxa80, 3) + vp(3, 3);

Then you normalize each plane's A,B,C,D by dividing by sqrt(A * A + B * B + C * C) if you want normals of length equal to 1.
