    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.

    You know, most human brains actualy read the first and last letter in each word, check all the letters in the middle (without being in any order) and then recognise the word.

    If this realy bothers you then I have to wonder how damaged you brain actually is...

    Taht olny wkros if ebvdoyery kowns the croerct slepling to bigen wtih. Just because words can be understood that doesn't make them easy to read.

    Spelling words correctly is surely a good thing - it makes communication easier. It seems clear that to some extent you agree; otherwise why would you put (most of) the letters in the words of your quoted post in the correct order? How do you write your CV?

    With that said, we all come here because it offers us something that we cannot get elsewhere (or possibly not so easily), and for that I think a few typographical errors are a small price to pay

    Try that with your next job application.

    Don't forget to mention the "damaged brain" part.
