GL11, GL12, GL13? What does it mean?
« on: March 13, 2007, 16:23:27 »
Is there a specal meaning for the class names GL11, GL12, GL13 etc.?
If I am right GL11 contains the OpenGL 1.1 specification, GL12 the new features of the OpenGL 1.2 specification and so on?

At this point I have to say that the javadoc of LWJGL is very bad, many important explanations are missing.

Yes you are correct, GL11 = OpenGL version 1.1, GL12 = OpenGL version 1.2, etc.

The javadoc for LWJGL is bad mostly because its just wrappers for the OpenGL methods of the same name and those are documented elsewhere (on www.OpenGL.org for instance) so it hasn't been needed. An automatic way to get the documentation from those places and put as javadoc comments for those methods would be needed since I think the code for those classes are auto-generated (someone correct me if I'm wrong).

Hope that helps ;D
