SGI IRIX Specific
The following features are specific to SGI's IRIX Operating System.
The al module implements access to the audio functions of the SGI Indy and Indigo workstations.
The AL module stores constants that are used with the al module.
The cd module provides an interface to the Silicon Graphics CD-ROM Library.
The fl module provides an interface to the FORMS Library (by Mark Overmars) for GUI applications.
The FL module stores constants that are used with the fl module.
The flp module defines functions that can load stored form designs created by the form designer (fdesign) program that comes with the FORMS library (the fl module).
The fm module implements an interface that provides access to the IRIS font manager library.
The gl module implements an interface that provides access to the Silicon Graphics graphic library. Note that this is different for OpenGL. There is a wrapper for OpenGL called PyOpenGL. More details can be found at Chapter 14, "Python and GUIs."
The DEVICE module defines the constants that are used with the gl module.
The GL module stores the constants that are used with the gl module.
The imgfile module implements support to access SGI's imglib image files.
The jpeg module provides image file access (read and write) to the JPEG compressor and decompressor format written by the Independent JPEG Group (IJG).
