gluTessBeginContour, gluTessEndContour

The gluTessBeginContour and gluTessEndContour functions delimit a contour description.

void gluTessBeginContour(
  GLUtesselator *tess

void gluTessEndContour(
  GLUtesselator *tess


The tessellation object (created with gluNewTess).


The gluTessBeginContour and gluTessEndContour functions delimit the definition of a polygon contour. Within each gluTessBeginContour/gluTessEndContour pair, there can be zero or more calls to gluTessVertex. The vertexes specify a closed contour (the last vertex of each contour is automatically linked to the first). You can call gluTessBeginContour only between gluTessBeginPolygon and gluTessEndPolygon.
