    openGL for the web is here!

    I just installed a "nightly build" of firefox 3.7 that supports the html 5.0 canvas object, because apparently a version of openGL ES (the 3D stuff on iphones) called webGL is now going online, with support in firefox, opera, chrome, safari.

    No plugin required.

    IT WORKS!!! The frame rate is low, but there are only a few demos I've found to look at.

    WebGL - OpenGL ES 2.0 for the Web

    If you want to try it, click thru to the wiki.

    This is pretty good news for me. Maybe less so for "silverlight"....
    C programming resources:
    GNU C Function and Macro Index -- glibc reference manual
    The C Book -- nice online learner guide
    Current ISO draft standard
    CCAN -- new CPAN like open source library repository
    3 (different) GNU debugger tutorials: #1 -- #2 -- #3
    cpwiki -- our wiki on sourceforge

    Old news.

    I wonder how long it'll take to become 'standard'...

    It's been in action for over 3 months. My reference.

    The latest WebGL specification is what was released 12 days ago.
