View Full Version : Perl and OpenGL

09-27-2003, 04:34 PM
is there anyway that Perl can be written with OpenGL? Or do you have to use C/C++. I'am working on a Final Fantasy type game for Linux. Where can I download OpenGL, or do I have to buy it?

I want to write the game in Perl with some ( as few as possible ) C system calls.
Thanks for your help in advance.

At the bottom on this page will you find perl bindings for OpenGL and glut. http://www.r3.nu/

OpenGL is a low level library so combining it with something like perl is crazy in my opinion. http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/smile.gif

Nvidia has great OpenGL drivers for all their cards from TNT and up. ATi has drivers for their later cards. There is a DRI project with drivers for some other cards. http://dri.sourceforge.net/

For game creation you'll be probably better using directly SDL bindings (http://www.sdlperl.org/).
