Wierd function behaviour (Using OpenGL data types?)

Recommended Posts

Ok, cutting straight to the chase ... I have a function which then runs one or two OpenGL functions, but it is acting very wierd on me and I cannot figure out why it's behaving like this :-( I have the following function:
void glPrint(GLfloat x, GLfloat y, GLfloat z, char* s)
{
	if (fontready != 1) 
	{
		makeRasterFont();
		fontready = 1;
	}
	glRasterPos3f(x, y, z);
	//glRasterPos3f(-0.1f, 0.0f, 1.0f);
	printString(s);
}
and I am calling it like this:
glPrint(-0.0f, 0.0f, 1.0f, "FRSGG");
Now, in the function declaration, if I put the string bit (CHAR) the app will crash when its called. Also, as you can see I have commented out a line, if I uncomment it and comment the one above it, the specified values have the desired effect and show properly, but if I use the function arguments to specify the same values it will not show anything! What is going on here? I have had a quick look at some of the OpenGL function declarations and it all seems to look fine! Any suggestions?
