GL-Z: a tiny OpenGL Information Utility for Windows, Linux and OS X

GL-Z is an OpenGL information utility that displays OpenGL main queries (GL_VERSION…) as well as extensions in the order they are exposed by the graphics driver. An extension can have a particular color (for example GL_NV extensions are in green and GL_AMD in red) and an OpenGL version (essentially for GL_ARB extensions).

GL-Z is a cross platform application and is available for Windows, Linux and OS X (10.10 included). GL-Z is based on GLSL Hacker and the code source (Lua + GLSL) is available in GL-Z folder (glz_src/). Some coding details are available HERE.

There are other tools that display OpenGL info (GPU Caps Viewer, GLView, etc..) so why another GL info tool ? The reason is simple: GL-Z is coded with GLSL Hacker and therefore is a perfect non-regression test for all future new versions of GLSL Hacker. A demo tool like GLSL Hacker requires a plethora of non-regression tests, that’s why a new test is still welcome 😉

I plan to add new features to GL-Z to make it more interesting and useful.

GL-Z 0.01 controls:
– [UP] or [DOWN]: moves up and down in the extensions list.
– [PGUP] or [PGDOWN]: moves up and down in the extensions list, but quikly.
– [HOME]: jumps to the beginning of the list.
– [END]: jumps to the end of the list.

    Can you please offer packages for Linux, Mac OS X and Windows separately? It will reduce download size from 8.1 MB to lower level for people.

    It would be nice to have an option to change GPU. For example, on Optimus, GL-Z chooses Intel’s integrated HD GPU instead of NV. Many users will be disappointed to see lower version of OpenGL than it is really supported by their systems.
