#1091 closed defect (wontfix)

glut: unexpected exit on (use glut)

Reported by: Mario Domenech Goulart Owned by: felix winkelmann
Priority: major Milestone: someday
Component: extensions Version: 4.8.x
Keywords: glut Cc:
Estimated difficulty: medium


Steps to reproduce:

$ DISPLAY= csi -e '(use glut)'
freeglut (csi): failed to open display ''
$ echo $?

If I understand correctly, there's no way to easily/cleanly handle that failure in scheme code.

Maybe glut should provide an initialization procedure that should be explicitly called and raise an exception on failure (so that it can be handled)?

I think this is not an error that can be decently handled on the Scheme sid. Moreover requiring explicit initialization would change the current usage.
