[Up] C Specification

constGLubyte *gluGetString(
    GLenum	 name)

[Up] Parameters

Specifies a symbolic constant, one of GLU_VERSION, or GLU_EXTENSIONS.

[Up] Description

gluGetString returns a pointer to a static string describing the GLU version or the GLU extensions that are supported.

The version number is one of the following forms:


The version string is of the following form:

<version number><space><vendor-specific information>

Vendor-specific information is optional. Its format and contents depend on the implementation.

The standard GLU contains a basic set of features and capabilities. If a company or group of companies wish to support other features, these may be included as extensions to the GLU. If name is GLU_EXTENSIONS, then gluGetString returns a space-separated list of names of supported GLU extensions. (Extension names never contain spaces.)

All strings are null-terminated.

[Up] Notes

gluGetString only returns information about GLU extensions. Call glGetString to get a list of GL extensions.

gluGetString is an initialization routine. Calling it after a glNewList results in undefined behavior.
