newbie question about glRasterPos

Hi, as far as I know glRasterPos lets you specify a point on the screen just like glVertext so you can display a bitmapped character on that exact coordinate. I have ran into this weird problem.
First I specify the position glRasterPos2f(-0.09,0.78) and printed a bitmapped character with no problem, but when I did the 2nd or 3rd glRasterPos function and prints, nothing happens. Any help will be appreciated.


    /*nothing gets print after the 1st glRasterPos

If your raster position is out of view then anything rendered will be clipped, could this be the problem ?


hi, how would I check if my raster position is out of the view?
