[Up] C Specification

void glXWaitGL(void)

[Up] Description

GL rendering calls made prior to glXWaitGL are guaranteed to be executed before X rendering calls made after glXWaitGL. Although this same result can be achieved using glFinish, glXWaitGL does not require a round trip to the server, and it is therefore more efficient in cases where client and server are on separate machines.

glXWaitGL is ignored if there is no current GLX context.

[Up] Notes

glXWaitGL may or may not flush the X stream.
