GLUT (25)

The glut cylinder functions don't appear to be wrapped.

    AFAIK, GLUT doesn't have those functions. They don't appear
    in my (fairly recent) version, at least, and they don't
    appear in the documentation.

    If you can point me to information regarding their
    specification, location, and under what conditions they are
    available (preferably with the constants/defines necessary
    to test whether to enable them) I can look at adding them,
    but without that I'd just be adding a compilation failure to
    the module :) .

    It does appear in OpenGLUT, but not FreeGLUT or GLUT.

    There are a few trivial recipes floating around the net for
    implementations, so I suppose I could just write substitutes
    for when they aren't available, but again, I'd need a
    reliable way to test for their existence, and the recipes
    are trivial enough that you can write them in Python in
    about 2 minutes.

    I'm no expert - I'll leave it to your better judgement :)

    Okay, I'm marking this closed, as I don't see it being part
    of the glut standard, and don't really have the time to wrap
    the extra functionality myself.
