pyopengl glShaderSourceA RB error

Hi all,

I think this is ctypes related but how can I call the glShaderSourceA RB
function?

The function have this header:

glShaderSourceA RB( GLhandleARB(sha derObj), GLsizei(count),
POINTER(arrays. GLcharARBArray) (string), GLintArray(leng th) ) -None

I call the function with someting like: glShaderSourceA RB(self._object ,
1, sourceString, 1)

The error is
"expected LP_GLcharArray instance instead of str"

In fact I don't have any information on how to use this function.
This is the last version of pyopengl available on the CVS
(PyOpenGL-3.0.0a5-py2.5.egg)

Sorry about the lack of information available. There's a sample of
usage here (known to work on Win32 and Linux with latest CVS HEAD):

http://pyopengl.cvs.sourceforge.net/...py?view=markup

The key information you seem to be missing are that the Python version
has a simpler API and that you have to pass an array (list) of strings,
not just a single string to the compilation function. The count and
length (array of lengths) parameters are pulled from the list-of-strings
you pass.

HTH,
Mike
