Anyone know a good source of learning material on OpenGL extension ... not just the usual handfull, but the whole lot? Also, where can i get wglext.h which has references to wglAllocateMemoryNV ... and what is the difference between that and wglAllocateMemoryNV2? i have seen references to both of them in some forums, but i can't track any info down on them. I'm assuming they are different, because in one message, they were spoken about seperatley! Finally, are there any other header files which are usefull for OpenGL, other than :- gl.h glext.h wglext.h (bugger glaux, glu and glut!) Regards (PS ... is there a common place where you can get all the latest versions of these files?) Edited by - Shag on July 22, 2001 8:17:16 PM

This is hoping ...

Has anyone created (in C) a list of function prototypes which include ALL (or at least most) OpenGL extensions? Or do i really have to type them in myself?

It''s gotta be worth a try!

On another note, has anyone tried the following piece of software, which gives details on your graphics card capabilities :-


If so, would you mind sending me the output file, with details of the graphics card, and the driver version you are using ... I want to compile a list of extensions supported by different cards and different drivers. Please state whether you are using manufacturers drivers, or reference drivers!

My email is :-
