Is it just me, or is anyone else pissed off at the 3rd edition of the Orange Book? There are typos, incomplete code, and all the omitted parts of the code are the critical stuff necessary for explaining the difference between the traditional fixed function pipeline and the shaders. To make matters worse, there is no errata available on the website, the website is ancient, and the "source" to the examples is all from the previous edition filled with deprecated calls...

This is ridiculous and absolutely absurd that the ARB's official tutorial was allowed to be so shitty.
