glGenLists - generate a contiguous set of empty display lists

C Specification

GLuint glGenLists( GLsizei range )


Specifies the number of contiguous empty display lists to be generated.


glGenLists has one argument, range. It returns an integer n such that range contiguous empty display lists, named n, n+1, ..., n+range -1, are created. If range is 0, if there is no group of range contiguous names available, or if any error is generated, no display lists are generated, and 0 is returned.


GL_INVALID_VALUE is generated if range is negative.

GL_INVALID_OPERATION is generated if glGenLists is executed between the execution of glBegin and the corresponding execution of glEnd.
