About OpenGL and jit.gl.sketch


    Apr 03 2007 | 3:10 pm
    Dear all,
    I'm going to start a new project, a 3D videogame based on OpenGL.
    And I'm looking for limitations that Jitter could have in comparison with standard C/C++ OpenGL project.
    I'm reading on page 352 of the JitterTutorial manual, talking about jit.gl.sketch, that:
    "Converting between OpenGL code as given in the “Redbook” and elsewhere (in the C programming language) and messages to jit.gl.sketch is reasonably straightforward(...)"
    What I would like to know is: all the (about) 250 OpenGL methods are available for jit.gl.sketch?
    Thank you very much

      ps: also the GLUT library are available?

      I would suggest to look at Wesley Smiths jit.gl.lua, which uses glua
      language to control openGL, might prove more flexible than using
      jit.gl.sketch in the long run.
      good luck!

      Thank you very much.
      I think I'll use Lua, it appears really interesting and closer to OpenGL sintax.
