    Default Testing Out Mesa's GLSL-To-TGSI Translator

    Phoronix: Testing Out Mesa's GLSL-To-TGSI Translator

    Being merged into the mainline Mesa tree once Mesa 7.11 has been released is the GLSL-To-TGSI translator. This allows core Mesa to translate directly from GLSL IR to TGSI, rather than stepping through the crufty Mesa IR, before reaching the Gallium3D hardware drivers. It's more efficient this way -- leading to possible performance improvements -- and it's also a stepping-stone in bringing GL Shading Language 1.30 support, which is required for OpenGL 3.0 compatibility.

    I'm almost certain Michael failed English at school. Seriously even if you don't get your work proof read at least spell check it!

    Using http://orangoo.com/spellcheck/ I find 2 errors: "brnach" and "performace".
    If my essays in highschool had only contained that few errors I would've got highest grades.

    Proofreading is important. It is unprofessional if there are glaring errors.

    Sure, but stating Michael failed some portion of school was just insulting.

    It gets rather tiresome reading through so many abusive and snide comments about Michaels writing, reporting, fact finding etc. Really, every discussion is littered with them.

    Constructive feedback is welcome of course.

    Agreed. Whatever your opinions are of this site's articles, there are constructive ways to offer your criticisms. Calling the author a high school failure isn't constructive; it's destructive. It's childish and it doesn't help anyone.

    The correct way to handle this type of concern:

    1. Clearly explain what the problem is; e.g. typos are distracting. Politely tell the author that proof-reading would improve the quality of the article.
    2. If article quality does not rise to meet your standards, stop reading articles on the site.


    That's it! That's all it takes. Ranting in the forums doesn't help.

    My opinion is that it was just a troll post, so called grammar natzi one. Let just not feed the trolls.

    Normally I'm all for starving the trolls, but lately there's been more troll posts than non-troll posts. I don't post much on Phoronix purely because when I do it's typically only trolls that respond. It's discouraging to everyone who wants to foster a real discussion on the article. Hopefully by actively discouraging the trolls and encouraging real posts we can get real discussions to be the norm and not the rarity.

    It would help if there were at least one on-topic post in this thread.
