GLXGETCLIENTSTRING(3G)			  OpenGL Manual 		   GLXGETCLIENTSTRING(3G)

NAME
       glXGetClientString - return a string describing the client

C SPECIFICATION
       const char * glXGetClientString(Display * dpy, int name);

PARAMETERS
       dpy
	   Specifies the connection to the X server.

       name
	   Specifies which string is returned. The symbolic constants GLX_VENDOR, GLX_VERSION,
	   and GLX_EXTENSIONS are accepted.

DESCRIPTION
       glXGetClientString returns a string describing some aspect of the client library. The
       possible values for name are GLX_VENDOR, GLX_VERSION, and GLX_EXTENSIONS. If name is not
       set to one of these values, glXGetClientString returns NULL. The format and contents of
       the vendor string is implementation dependent.

       The extensions string is null-terminated and contains a space-separated list of extension
       names. (The extension names never contain spaces.) If there are no extensions to GLX, then
       the empty string is returned.

       The version string is laid out as follows:

       <major_version.minor_version><space><vendor-specific info>

       Both the major and minor portions of the version number are of arbitrary length. The
       vendor-specific information is optional. However, if it is present, the format and
       contents are implementation specific.

NOTES
       glXGetClientString is available only if the GLX version is 1.1 or greater.

       If the GLX version is 1.1 or 1.0, the GL version must be 1.0. If the GLX version is 1.2,
       then the GL version must be 1.1. If the GLX version is 1.3, then the GL version must be
       1.2.

       glXGetClientString only returns information about GLX extensions supported by the client.
       Call glGetString() to get a list of GL extensions supported by the server.
