  Most upto date OpenGL bluebook/mangpage?  (Read 701 times)

Is there an upto date OpenGL bluebook (aka manpage) site freely available? If possible in a HTML formatted form compared to a plain ASCII dump.

The one I use is: http://developer.3dlabs.com/glmanpage_index.htm
It contains several ARB/extensions in the various GL command pages, but many are still missing, unfortunately.

So usually I still have to cross check with here: http://oss.sgi.com/projects/ogl-sample/registry/

... which is very inefficient. :-(


Of course I checked out the OpenGL.org site but it justs links to the 1.0 (!) version of the bluebook, which is hardly to believe - after all it should be in their interest, too, that OpenGL users all over the world use upto date information on the API and not ancient onces?
Am I missing the point?

The current release of the Blue Book is the 4th edition. Covers up to GL 1.4. Nothing later though. If you want shaders, the Orange Book seems to be the way to go.

Programming is essentially a markup language surrounding mathematical formulae and thus, should not be patentable.

Normal Blue book would do. Is your mentioned v1.4 one available online?

I doubt it. It's very recent and AW only release the previous version of their various OGL developer series books. You may find a ripped copy somewhere, but there won't be any legal versions.
