My boss would buy a SGI workstation. But, before, he ask me some questions that
i can't answer. The answers are probably in the FAQ, but where are the FAQ ???
1) Is Inventor (the latest version) fully compatible with GNU C++ compiler
(?g++?). If not, what are the biggest problems.
2) Is Inventor fully compatible with OpenGL ?
3) Needs Inventor some specifics hardware to run. Is it needed to buy special
hardware with the station ? Some other computer systems (like SUN for
example) sells graphics cards that must be GL compatible. Are these cards
Inventor compatible to ??
4) My boss show me a description of a software called Nth XGL (or something
like that). It's a library from a firm called Nth wich emulate the GL
library (the library of Nth, not the firm ;-)). At the end of this
description, i've seen a very big list of incompatibilities with the
standard GL. But the document was from July 92. Has someone experience with
this library. Is this library been upgraded since July 92 ??
In advance, I thanks you very much for your help.
P.S. Please apologize my poor english ;-)
