[Openal-devel] alutInit and 1.1 changes
Fri, 15 Jul 2005 12:18:35 -0700
OK -- I've changed alutInit back to the old signature, checked in all
changes, and tested to make sure everything still works under Linux
and Windows. All seems OK...
I need to update ALTest and XLDemo to run properly under the Linux
1.1 implementation -- that should happen next week... The Linux demo
apps seem to work fine.
I _did not_ ultimately change ALsizei and ALCsizei to be ints instead
of unsigned ints. It does appear that GL uses ints, but their spec
indicates that it is an unsigned number. Making the change also
screws up various AL functions, which won't make as much sense as
before (because signed numbers are weird). So -- until I _know_ that
the "GL-way" is consistent with their own spec and isn't some wierd
compatability hack on their part, I intend to leave this as is (with
a note that our spec may have to be changed down the road...).
Perhaps Ryan knows something of the history of this in the GL world,
or has an opinion?
