well, i just installed XFree86 4.2 and guess what? yes, opengl man pages were added. no need for the blue book anymore ;-)

so, just grab a copy and install it....

Yes, I totally agree but I think this is the man pages for OpenGL 1.2, this is of course better than 1.1 but not so good as 1.3. http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/smile.gif
It also seems like they are not proper preproccessed, at least not the HTML versions. Take a look at the table at the bottom http://ftp.xfree86.org/pub/XFree86/4.2.0/doc/HTML/glTexEnvf.3.html

If you type "man glTexEnvf" do you get some kind of table or is it a mess with lots of $ and sub?

hm, yes. the html version is crappy, but i just used the man page, and it's ok....

maybe someone will add man pages for mesa 4.x. i don't know who's responsible for that, but it'd be very nice. you don't know, when the next X version will be released :-)
anyway, perhaps someone from the mesa-team could add them??
