after lots of requests, the new units for OpenGL support in Free Pascal
are finished now.
These new units are based on the Delphi units by Tom Nuydens for
delphi3d.net. I decided to switch to these units, because they are well
maintained, looked complete and support almost all OpenGL extensions.
The examples have been adapted to the new units (there a some minor
incompatiblities), and a new example has been added.
This time I tested everything on Win32 as well ;-), and the examples are
You might have problems to compile the glext.pp unit on Win32, due to a
bug in FPC's scanner. I hope this will be fixed soon.
The new units should appear in tomorrow's CVS snapshots; of course you
can fetch them already now via CVS.
I'll add OpenGL support to fpGFX within the next weeks; then it will be
possible to write OpenGL applications with window support for Win32 and
X11, _without_ using the GLUT library. And I'll try to integrate fpImg
as well, so that textures can be loaded using fpImg.
