Synopsis

A fork of the OpenGL 2.2.1.1 package.

Modifications to OpenGL IO using the -XGeneralizedNewtypeDeriving extension create context sensitive MonadIO aliases.

Motivation

  • Simplify concurrent OpenGL applications by explicitly tagging OpenGL code/contexts.
  • Enforce static type checking on commands that can only be executed in certain OpenGL contexts (sending vertex data in immediate-mode for example).

Related Software

Caveats

  • Graphics.Rendering.OGL.GLU.* is untested.

Changes from the official hOpenGL package

OGL 0.0.0
