new glExt.h?

Recommended Posts

Is there a new glExt.h that has been released some where with all the latest extentions in it I looked for an hour and found nothing, so in the end I just made the entrys for the header my self. So im just wondering if there is a newer one that has been released new extentions in it?

Go here: http://cvs1.nvidia.com/

They''re gl 1.4 and some new stuff like vertex buffers are probably missing then again they might be newer than ones I have.

From the glext.h file:

quote:

I have no idea how they can publish something on the web and get away with calling it "confidential", but I wouldn''t be comfortable using that file in my own software. I''d rather create my own by looking at the prototypes and enumerants in the extensions registry.

"confidential" lol, I think I''ll just keep my copy that I got from The ExtReg and update it when they update the ones there. I can always just keep addin the ones I want.

<a href="http://oss.sgi.com/projects/ogl-sample/ABI/glext.h">This</a> is the latest glext.h file out there. It includes the ARB_VBO extension.


So where''s the #define GL_VERSION_1_4 ?

It says:
/* glext.h last updated 2002/07/18 */

SGI seem to have given up updating glext.h. This version certainly doesn''t contain VBO.

You need to add the entry yourself.

Also, most drivers don't officially expose VBO yet - it's still in the 'experimental' stage (at least in nvidia drivers). But it does exist.
