const GLubyte * gluGetString(
GLenum name );
Specifies a symbolic constant, one of GLU_VERSION, or GLU_EXTENSIONS.
DESCRIPTIONgluGetString() returns a pointer to a static string describing the GLU
version or the GLU extensions that are supported.
The version number is one of the following forms:
The version string is of the following form:
version number<space>vendor-specific information
Vendor-specific information is optional. Its format and contents depend
on the implementation.
The standard GLU contains a basic set of features and capabilities. If
a company or group of companies wish to support other features, these
may be included as extensions to the GLU. If name is GLU_EXTENSIONS,
then gluGetString() returns a space-separated list of names of sup‐
ported GLU extensions. (Extension names never contain spaces.)
All strings are null-terminated.
NOTESgluGetString() only returns information about GLU extensions. Call
glGetString() to get a list of GL extensions.
gluGetString() is an initialization routine. Calling it after a
glNewList() results in undefined behavior.
NULL is returned if name is not GLU_VERSION or GLU_EXTENSIONS.
