Hello,

If I understand correcty, the function glxGetProcAddress is equivalent to wglGetProcAddress in NT. But for some reason, MSDN tells there is no equivalent for wglGetProcAddress in GLX. We have libraries and include files for X that does not contain this routine. We need it badly.
What is the reason for this ?
Thanks,
Zvika.

it should be in glx.h or glxext.h.

If not, then what platform are using X on?

First off this is rather linux thread.
Second.
There is no glxGetProcAddress.
There is only glxGetProcAddressARB.
It was one of the first GLX extensions intoduced by ARB for GLX.
If I'm correct it's in the core.
But as you know....MS doesn't like alternative OS's and I don't think that they would do 100% good alternative OS docs in theirs developer relationsh website and docs http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/smile.gif

Hello, thank you for your reply.
We are using Exceed which is an X emulation for NT. It has all X+OpenGL libs,include files and X server. I searched for glxGetProcAddress or glxGetProcAddressARB. But it's not there.
Can you tell why ? Is it a not standard glx system call ?

And GLX libs ?
And does X-server for windoze have ogl support ? ( GLX stuff )
