It turns out there *is* a technical reason why the machine-generated opengl binding is not up-to-date. As stated in https://community.khronos.org/t/new-xml-based-api-registry-released/70176 the specfiles are no longer being produced. Instead, they are providing the same information coded as XML. (I've also seen a few very old comments indicating that the old specfiles has serious bogs in them; indeed, setphanh42 had to patch those official specfiles before they were usable.) It looks as if these XML files are used to produce the official C header files, so there is a chance they're correct. And there appears to be a python script to produce those headers, so there's hope. So the entire program converting specfiles to Racket code will have to be rewritten. Or perhaps I just need a compatibility shim to translate the xml into specfile format... xml is at least a fairly well-supported notation. Or maybe their python code can be repurposed. Will look into it. -- hendrik > > On Sat, Mar 7, 2020 at 6:57 AM Hendrik Boom <hend...@topoi.pooq.com> wrote: > > > Is there any technical reason why glCreateVertexArrays is missing from > > the Racket OpenGL package? > > > > The documentation at https://docs.racket-lang.org/opengl/index.html > > says that "Being automatically-generated means that it is quite complete." > > > > So I would have expected it to be present. > > > > But it is not present either in the implemetation or in the > > documentation ( https://docs.racket-lang.org/opengl/glC___.html ) > > > > I do have openGL 4.5 on my system, so it's not because the opengl > > library is too old (which did happen on an older computer). > > > > Would bringing it up-to-date perhaps interfere with the operation of > > other packages? > > > > -- hendrik > > > > -- > > You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups > > "Racket Users" group. > > To unsubscribe from this group and stop receiving emails from it, send an > > email to racket-users+unsubscr...@googlegroups.com. > > To view this discussion on the web visit > > https://groups.google.com/d/msgid/racket-users/20200307145657.gq7xgysyvkz5yn7y%40topoi.pooq.com > > . > > > > -- > You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups > "Racket Users" group. > To unsubscribe from this group and stop receiving emails from it, send an > email to racket-users+unsubscr...@googlegroups.com. > To view this discussion on the web visit > https://groups.google.com/d/msgid/racket-users/CADcuegsktFyB2iRV0-nV018mFOeO8Fhqe6mbp_4_ksesXX%3DZtQ%40mail.gmail.com. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Racket Users" group.
