GLGETACTIVEUNIFORMNA(3G)		  OpenGL Manual 		 GLGETACTIVEUNIFORMNA(3G)

NAME
       glGetActiveUniformName - query the name of an active uniform

C SPECIFICATION
       void glGetActiveUniformName(GLuint program, GLuint uniformIndex, GLsizei bufSize,
				   GLsizei *length, GLchar *uniformName);

PARAMETERS
       program
	   Specifies the program containing the active uniform index uniformIndex.

       uniformIndex
	   Specifies the index of the active uniform whose name to query.

       bufSize
	   Specifies the size of the buffer, in units of GLchar, of the buffer whose address is
	   specified in uniformName.

       length
	   Specifies the address of a variable that will receive the number of characters that
	   were or would have been written to the buffer addressed by uniformName.

       uniformName
	   Specifies the address of a buffer into which the GL will place the name of the active
	   uniform at uniformIndex within program.

DESCRIPTION
       glGetActiveUniformName returns the name of the active uniform at uniformIndex within
       program. If uniformName is not NULL, up to bufSize characters (including a nul-terminator)
       will be written into the array whose address is specified by uniformName. If length is not
       NULL, the number of characters that were (or would have been) written into uniformName
       (not including the nul-terminator) will be placed in the variable whose address is
       specified in length. If length is NULL, no length is returned. The length of the longest
       uniform name in program is given by the value of GL_ACTIVE_UNIFORM_MAX_LENGTH, which can
       be queried with glGetProgram().

       If glGetActiveUniformName is not successful, nothing is written to length or uniformName.

       program must be the name of a program for which the command glLinkProgram() has been
       issued in the past. It is not necessary for program to have been linked successfully. The
       link could have failed because the number of active uniforms exceeded the limit.

       uniformIndex must be an active uniform index of the program program, in the range zero to
       GL_ACTIVE_UNIFORMS - 1. The value of GL_ACTIVE_UNIFORMS can be queried with
       glGetProgram().

ERRORS
       GL_INVALID_VALUE is generated if uniformIndex is greater than or equal to the value of
       GL_ACTIVE_UNIFORMS.

       GL_INVALID_VALUE is generated if bufSize is negative.

       GL_INVALID_VALUE is generated if program is not the name of a program object for which
       glLinkProgram() has been issued.
