5.5 Flush and Finish

The command

void Flush ( void ) ;

indicates that all commands that have previously been sent to the GL must complete in finite time.

The command

void Finish ( void ) ;

forces all previous GL commands to complete. Finish  does not return until all effects from previously issued commands on GL client and server state and the framebuffer are fully realized.
