GL-Z on Linux Mint 17, GeForce GTX 680
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 0.1.0 Windows 64-bit
GL-Z 0.1.0 Linux 64-bit
GL-Z 0.1.0 OS X (10.8, 10.9, 10.10)
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.
