NAME
       glXMakeContextCurrent - attach a GLX context to a GLX drawable

C SPECIFICATION
       Bool glXMakeContextCurrent(Display * display, GLXDrawable draw, GLXDrawable read,
				  GLXContext ctx);

PARAMETERS
       display
	   Specifies the connection to the X server.

       draw
	   Specifies a GLX drawable to render into. Must be an XID representing a GLXWindow,
	   GLXPixmap, or GLXPbuffer.

       read
	   Specifies a GLX drawable to read from. Must be an XID representing a GLXWindow,
	   GLXPixmap, or GLXPbuffer.

       ctx
	   Specifies the GLX context to be bound to read and ctx.

DESCRIPTION
       glXMakeContextCurrent binds ctx to the current rendering thread and to the draw and read
       GLX drawables.  draw and read may be the same.

       draw is used for all OpenGL operations except:

       Any pixel data that are read based on the value of GLX_READ_BUFFER. Note that accumulation
       operations use the value of GLX_READ_BUFFER, but are not allowed unless draw is identical
       to read.

       Any depth values that are retrieved by glReadPixels() or glCopyPixels().

       Any stencil values that are retrieved by glReadPixels() or glCopyPixels().

       Frame buffer values are taken from draw.

       If the current rendering thread has a current rendering context, that context is flushed
       and replaced by ctx.

       The first time that ctx is made current, the viewport and scissor dimensions are set to
       the size of the draw drawable. The viewport and scissor are not modified when ctx is
       subsequently made current.

       To release the current context without assigning a new one, call glXMakeContextCurrent
       with draw and read set to None and ctx set to NULL.

       glXMakeContextCurrent returns True if it is successful, False otherwise. If False is
       returned, the previously current rendering context and drawable (if any) remain unchanged.

NOTES
       glXMakeContextCurrent is available only if the GLX version is 1.3 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.

ERRORS
       BadMatch is generated if draw and read are not compatible.

       BadAccess is generated if ctx is current to some other thread.

       GLXContextState is generated if there is a current rendering context and its render mode
       is either GLX_FEEDBACK or GLX_SELECT.

       GLXBadContext is generated if ctx is not a valid GLX rendering context.

       GLXBadDrawable is generated if draw or read is not a valid GLX drawable.

       GLXBadWindow is generated if the underlying X window for either draw or read is no longer
       valid.

       GLXBadCurrentDrawable is generated if the previous context of the calling thread has
       unflushed commands and the previous drawable is no longer valid.

       BadAlloc is generated if the X server does not have enough resources to allocate the
       buffers.

       BadMatch is generated if:

       draw and read cannot fit into frame buffer memory simultaneously.

       draw or read is a GLXPixmap and ctx is a direct-rendering context.

       draw or read is a GLXPixmap and ctx was previously bound to a GLXWindow or GLXPbuffer.

       draw or read is a GLXWindow or GLXPbuffer and ctx was previously bound to a GLXPixmap.
