View Full Version : "official" glext.h missing latest ARB, NVidia, and ATI prototypes

Does anyone know who is responsible for updating the glext.h/glxext.h header files on <http://oss.sgi.com/projects/ogl-sample/registry/> ?

As far as I can tell it seems to be way out of date, missing the latest NVidia, ATI, and ARB extensions. It would be nice to have an "official" reference header so that users don't have to compile their own from the versions in vendor-specific SDKs.

Anyone know who I can email about this?

For nvidia
http://cvs1.nvidia.com/inc/GL/glext.h

For ATi - possibly downloading their SDK would help

Thanks for the pointer, but I've already checked out the individual SDK headers.

The crux of my post was my hope that someone on the ARB or from specific vendors could update the headers on the official extension repository site. It would be nice to have "one stop shopping" for all the function prototypes for the registered extensions.

After all, the extension registry site does say: "These headers define interfaces <...> for all registered extensions."

Right now that statement is not true.

These headers have been out-of-date for quite while.
GLEW http://glew.sourceforge.net supports as good as all newer extensions and naturally comes with the corresponding header files. You might want to take a look at it.

Edit: Fixed link.

<Sigh>. Thanks. I guess the nice thing about standards is that everybody has one http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/smile.gif
