GLNEWLIST(3G)				  OpenGL Manual 			    GLNEWLIST(3G)

NAME
       glNewList - create or replace a display list

C SPECIFICATION
       void glNewList(GLuint list, GLenum mode);

PARAMETERS
       list
	   Specifies the display-list name.

       mode
	   Specifies the compilation mode, which can be GL_COMPILE or GL_COMPILE_AND_EXECUTE.

C SPECIFICATION
       void glEndList(void);

DESCRIPTION
       Display lists are groups of GL commands that have been stored for subsequent execution.
       Display lists are created with glNewList. All subsequent commands are placed in the
       display list, in the order issued, until glEndList() is called.

       glNewList has two arguments. The first argument, list, is a positive integer that becomes
       the unique name for the display list. Names can be created and reserved with glGenLists()
       and tested for uniqueness with glIsList(). The second argument, mode, is a symbolic
       constant that can assume one of two values:

       GL_COMPILE
	   Commands are merely compiled.

       GL_COMPILE_AND_EXECUTE
	   Commands are executed as they are compiled into the display list.

       Certain commands are not compiled into the display list but are executed immediately,
       regardless of the display-list mode. These commands are glAreTexturesResident(),
       glColorPointer(), glDeleteLists(), glDeleteTextures(), glDisableClientState(),
       glEdgeFlagPointer(), glEnableClientState(), glFeedbackBuffer(), glFinish(), glFlush(),
       glGenLists(), glGenTextures(), glIndexPointer(), glInterleavedArrays(), glIsEnabled(),
       glIsList(), glIsTexture(), glNormalPointer(), glPopClientAttrib(), glPixelStore(),
       glPushClientAttrib(), glReadPixels(), glRenderMode(), glSelectBuffer(),
       glTexCoordPointer(), glVertexPointer(), and all of the glGet() commands.

       Similarly, glTexImage1D(), glTexImage2D(), and glTexImage3D() are executed immediately and
       not compiled into the display list when their first argument is GL_PROXY_TEXTURE_1D,
       GL_PROXY_TEXTURE_1D, or GL_PROXY_TEXTURE_3D, respectively.

       When the ARB_imaging extension is supported, glHistogram() executes immediately when its
       argument is GL_PROXY_HISTOGRAM. Similarly, glColorTable() executes immediately when its
       first argument is GL_PROXY_COLOR_TABLE, GL_PROXY_POST_CONVOLUTION_COLOR_TABLE, or
       GL_PROXY_POST_COLOR_MATRIX_COLOR_TABLE.

       For OpenGL versions 1.3 and greater, or when the ARB_multitexture extension is supported,
       glClientActiveTexture() is not compiled into display lists, but executed immediately.

       When glEndList() is encountered, the display-list definition is completed by associating
       the list with the unique name list (specified in the glNewList command). If a display list
       with name list already exists, it is replaced only when glEndList() is called.

NOTES
       glCallList() and glCallLists() can be entered into display lists. Commands in the display
       list or lists executed by glCallList() or glCallLists() are not included in the display
       list being created, even if the list creation mode is GL_COMPILE_AND_EXECUTE.

       A display list is just a group of commands and arguments, so errors generated by commands
       in a display list must be generated when the list is executed. If the list is created in
       GL_COMPILE mode, errors are not generated until the list is executed.

ERRORS
       GL_INVALID_VALUE is generated if list is 0.

       GL_INVALID_ENUM is generated if mode is not an accepted value.

       GL_INVALID_OPERATION is generated if glEndList() is called without a preceding glNewList,
       or if glNewList is called while a display list is being defined.

       GL_INVALID_OPERATION is generated if glNewList or glEndList() is executed between the
       execution of glBegin() and the corresponding execution of glEnd().

       GL_OUT_OF_MEMORY is generated if there is insufficient memory to compile the display list.
       If the GL version is 1.1 or greater, no change is made to the previous contents of the
       display list, if any, and no other change is made to the GL state. (It is as if no attempt
       had been made to create the new display list.)

ASSOCIATED GETS
       glIsList()

       glGet() with argument GL_LIST_INDEX
