Looking for old-style GL (not OpenGL) emulation

Unread postby seth_teller » Sat Jan 01, 2011 7:22 am

My SGI machines have died but I'd still like to run various codes written in old-style GL.
Has anyone written an emulator for this predecessor to OpenGL?

Alternatively, I would try to rebuild my Octanes if someone would lend me a set of
IRIX 6.5 CDs (IRIX 6.5.30 OS and IRIX 6.5 compilers). I'm in Cambridge, MA.

There is one, I can't remember where I found it but I think I might have a copy archived somewhere. Never tried it because I don't have the source to the IRIS GL programs I wanted to run and it doesn't support DGL (what I was hoping it would support).

I guess you mean Iris GL. I have used Ygl under CentOS Linux without problems. Ygl emulates Iris GL and requires
a X11 server. I have attached the Readme file from Ygl (rename .txt to .htm).
