This is the first official release of OpenGL::Modern supporting OpenGL API bindings for OpenGL versions up to version 4.5.
Bindings have been generated for all API routines but
any pointer value arguments or return values are
implemented as passing and returning raw pointers to
data or string buffers. These "raw" functions are
named by starting with the base name of the C OpenGL
routine and appending
_c (representing the C pointer)
See documentation and the perl source to OpenGL::Modern::Helpers for examples for calling those routines (i.e. perldoc -m OpenGL::Modern::Helpers). As this is a new module, the handling for those pointer arguments will be evolving. These changes will be documented in OpenGL::Modern::Helpers until final.
All releases for OpenGL::Modern should be considered alpha until the API is fully implemented and stable.
We're happy for user feedback and questions. See #pogl on irc.perl.org for chatting and the Perl OpenGL users lists at the sf.net site. They are members only but you can use the Subscribe link to join:
To install this module type the following:
perl Makefile.PL make make test make install
or cpan or cpanm.
This module requires these other modules and libraries:
Carp => 0, Capture::Tiny => 0, Data::Dumper => 0, Devel::CheckOS => 0, Devel::CheckLib => 0, ExtUtils::Constant => 0, ExtUtils::MakeMaker => 6.17, ExtUtils::MakeMaker::CPANfile => 0, IO::All => 0, Test::InDistDir => 0, Test::More => 0.88,
not required but needed for currently unimplemented features:
OpenGL 0.70 (for unimplemented functions)
