    glList, it is a interest?

    For drawing, I see often developers using lists for representing two or three time the same drawing in 3D world . What is the interest to use list (glList...glCallList). It is more rapidly than to use a boucle for drawing by example five teopot exactly identical.
    Tchao.

    Display lists are one of the fastest methods of drawing static objects, i.e. objects that does not change form. When using display lists, the driver can store the object as efficiently as possible. Display lists are highly recomended if you want speed.
