greetings to all,
it's my understanding that opengl implementations must implement the entire set of functionality defined in the spec (including glu). why is this so?
wouldn't it be *easier* if someone (sgi?) provided a common base implementation for all the boilerplate code that's not really on the fast path anyway, freeing driver writers to focus more on time critical/novel areas of the api, and perhaps even opening the door to a more agressive expansion of glu services?
all comments are welcome :-)
