Display Lists

I am trying to improve performance in my app so I decided to try display lists… when I swtiched to them my performance actually went down not up! Also I would like
to try STRIPS but I am not sure if I am allow to call glBindTexture between glBegin and glEnd (the programming guide says this is not allowed… or at least it is not in the table of allowed functions inside glBegin and glEnd. Are strips only good for tiling with the same texture?


yes the book is correct
