Where can I find the documentation for OpenGL ES and bbutil.h

Sorry if it's been asked and answered, but I can't seem to locate any real documentation for OpenGL ES as it's implemented for the Playbook as well as the bbutil functions.  I've gotten a flavor by working through the sample programs, I have many questions.

 

Any guidance would be appreciated.

 

Thanks.

Since OpenGL ES 2 is supported on the PlayBook (and apparently simulator) I would expect you'd head straight to the source: http://www.khronos.org/opengles/

Thanks Peter,

 

I've been to that website before to look for something, but couldn't find the documentation.  I guess I didn't look hard enough because at your suggestion I looked again and found this

 

http://www.opengl.org/sdk/docs/man4/

 

which is more what I wanted.

 

Now, bbutil stuff.  Maybe I'm not looking hard enough for that too.

 

Thanks again.

I don't expect you'll find the bbutil stuff documented outside the source code. I got the strong impression it's just a batch of utility routines and such, thrown together just to make the samples work and not necessarily part of any standard or supported set of code.

Ok, that makes sense.

 

This will keep me busy for a while.

 

Thanks again, Peter.
