glShaderSource: Replaces the source code in a shader object

Function Definition

 void glShaderSource(GLuint shader​, GLsizei count​, const GLchar **string​, const GLint *length​);
shader
Specifies the handle of the shader object whose source code is to be replaced.
count
Specifies the number of elements in the string​ and length​ arrays.
string
Specifies an array of pointers to strings containing the source code to be loaded into the shader.
length
Specifies an array of string lengths.

Description

glShaderSource sets the source code in shader​ to the source code in the array of strings specified by string​. Any source code previously stored in the shader object is completely replaced. The number of strings in the array is specified by count​. If length​ is NULL​, each string is assumed to be null terminated. If length​ is a value other than NULL​, it points to an array containing a string length for each of the corresponding elements of string​. Each element in the length​ array may contain the length of the corresponding string (the null character is not counted as part of the string length) or a value less than 0 to indicate that the string is null terminated. The source code strings are not scanned or parsed at this time; they are simply copied into the specified shader object.

Notes

OpenGL copies the shader source code strings when glShaderSource is called, so an application may free its copy of the source code strings immediately after the function returns.

Errors

GL_INVALID_VALUE​ is generated if shader​ is not a value generated by OpenGL.

GL_INVALID_OPERATION​ is generated if shader​ is not a shader object.

GL_INVALID_VALUE​ is generated if count​ is less than 0.
