glCompressedTexImage1D: specify a one-dimensional texture image in a compressed format

## Function Definition

 void glCompressedTexImage1D(GLenum target​, GLint level​, GLenum internalformat​, GLsizei width​, GLint border​, GLsizei imageSize​, const GLvoid * data​);

target
Specifies the target texture. Must be GL_TEXTURE_1D​ or GL_PROXY_TEXTURE_1D​.
level
Specifies the level-of-detail number. Level 0 is the base image level. Level n is the nth mipmap reduction image.
internalformat
Specifies the format of the compressed image data stored at address data​.
width
Specifies the width of the texture image. All implementations support texture images that are at least 64 texels wide. The height of the 1D texture image is 1.
border
This value must be 0.
imageSize
Specifies the number of unsigned bytes of image data starting at the address specified by data​.
data
Specifies a pointer to the compressed image data in memory.

## Description

glCompressedTexImage1D defines storage for a 1-dimensional mipmap level of a texture, using a compressed image format, and then loads into this storage image data that has been compressed with the same compressed format.

If target​ is GL_TEXTURE_1D​, then the image defined is a mipmap layer of a 1D texture.

If target​ is GL_PROXY_TEXTURE_1D​, no data is read from data​, but all of the texture image state is recalculated, checked for consistency, and checked against the implementation's capabilities. If the implementation cannot handle a texture of the requested texture size, it sets all of the image state to 0, but does not generate an error (see ). To query for an entire mipmap array, use an image array level greater than or equal to 1.

internalformat​ must be an extension-specified compressed-texture format. When a texture is loaded with using a generic compressed texture format (e.g., GL_COMPRESSED_RGB​) the GL selects from one of its extensions supporting compressed textures. In order to load the compressed texture image using glCompressedTexImage1D, query the compressed texture image's size and format using .

If a non-zero named buffer object is bound to the GL_PIXEL_UNPACK_BUFFER​ target (see ) while a texture image is specified, data​ is treated as a byte offset into the buffer object's data store.

If the compressed data are arranged into fixed-size blocks of texels, the pixel storage modes can be used to select a sub-rectangle from a larger containing rectangle. These pixel storage modes operate in the same way as they do for . In the following description, denote by bs, bw, bh, and bd, the values of pixel storage modes GL_UNPACK_COMPRESSED_BLOCK_SIZE​, GL_UNPACK_COMPRESSED_BLOCK_WIDTH​, GL_UNPACK_COMPRESSED_BLOCK_HEIGHT​, and GL_UNPACK_COMPRESSED_BLOCK_DEPTH​, respectively. bs is the compressed block size in bytes; bw, bh, and bd are the compressed block width, height, and depth in pixels.

By default the pixel storage modes GL_UNPACK_ROW_LENGTH​, GL_UNPACK_SKIP_ROWS​, GL_UNPACK_SKIP_PIXELS​, GL_UNPACK_IMAGE_HEIGHT​ and GL_UNPACK_SKIP_IMAGES​ are ignored for compressed images. To enable GL_UNPACK_SKIP_PIXELS​ and GL_UNPACK_ROW_LENGTH​, bsand bw must both be non-zero. To also enable GL_UNPACK_SKIP_ROWS​ and GL_UNPACK_IMAGE_HEIGHT​, bh must be non-zero. To also enable GL_UNPACK_SKIP_IMAGES​, bd must be non-zero. All parameters must be consistent with the compressed format to produce the desired results.

When selecting a sub-rectangle from a compressed image:

• the value of GL_UNPACK_SKIP_PIXELS​ must be a multiple of bw;

imageSize​ must be equal to:

$b_s \times \left \lceil \frac{width}{b_w} \right \rceil$

## Errors

GL_INVALID_ENUM​ is generated if internalformat​ is not a supported specific compressed internal formats, or is one of the specific compressed internal formats: GL_COMPRESSED_RED_RGTC1​, GL_COMPRESSED_SIGNED_RED_RGTC1​, GL_COMPRESSED_RG_RGTC2​, GL_COMPRESSED_SIGNED_RG_RGTC2​. GL_COMPRESSED_RGBA_BPTC_UNORM​, GL_COMPRESSED_SRGB_ALPHA_BPTC_UNORM​, GL_COMPRESSED_RGB_BPTC_SIGNED_FLOAT​, GL_COMPRESSED_RGB_BPTC_UNSIGNED_FLOAT​, GL_COMPRESSED_RGB8_ETC2​, GL_COMPRESSED_SRGB8_ETC2​, GL_COMPRESSED_RGB8_PUNCHTHROUGH_ALPHA1_ETC2​, GL_COMPRESSED_SRGB8_PUNCHTHROUGH_ALPHA1_ETC2​, GL_COMPRESSED_RGBA8_ETC2_EAC​, GL_COMPRESSED_SRGB8_ALPHA8_ETC2_EAC​, GL_COMPRESSED_R11_EAC​, GL_COMPRESSED_SIGNED_R11_EAC​, GL_COMPRESSED_RG11_EAC​, or GL_COMPRESSED_SIGNED_RG11_EAC​.

GL_INVALID_VALUE​ is generated if imageSize​ is not consistent with the format, dimensions, and contents of the specified compressed image data.

GL_INVALID_VALUE​ is generated if border​ is not 0.

GL_INVALID_OPERATION​ is generated if parameter combinations are not supported by the specific compressed internal format as specified in the specific texture compression extension.

GL_INVALID_OPERATION​ is generated if a non-zero buffer object name is bound to the GL_PIXEL_UNPACK_BUFFER​ target and the buffer object's data store is currently mapped.

GL_INVALID_OPERATION​ is generated if a non-zero buffer object name is bound to the GL_PIXEL_UNPACK_BUFFER​ target and the data would be unpacked from the buffer object such that the memory reads required would exceed the data store size.

Undefined results, including abnormal program termination, are generated if data​ is not encoded in a manner consistent with the extension specification defining the internal compression format.
