GLinspector 0.1.0: OpenGL Extensions and Functions Queries (Developer Tool)

OpenGL logo

1 – GLinspector Overview

GLinspector is a tiny tool (150KB) to interrogate OpenGL about the presence of extensions and functions. For example, Intel GMA driver does not expose the GL_ARB_texture_buffer_object extension but the entry point of the glTexBuffer function is available (which means the GL_ARB_texture_buffer_object string has been somewhat omitted by Intel dev team):

    ??? OK… I guess I can write that tool in 20 minutes by just using glewGetExtension and wglGetProcAddress or am I wrong?

  • Yes, you’re totally right, any developer can write this tool in 10 minutes, but in my case, I don’t want to write it each time I test a new driver (NV, AMD and now Intel, on testbeds that don’t have dev tools). I wrote it once, and shared it with the community…

    sorry, I really didn’t mean to be insulting or something. And I agree, the driver world is a hell!

  • no prob zqueezy, your question was relevant 😉
