Nvidia Cg Tutorial book

Has anyone taken a look at this book yet? I’m just wondering if anyone knows if it is any different than the Cg Users Manual that comes w/ the Cg Toolkit. In the Users Manual they mention how it’s a book so I’m guessing this book now on sale is just a printed version of the Users Manual.


No, the user’s manual available from the NVIDIA developer site and the Cg Tutorial book are not the same book, they are quite a bit different.

Ah ok thanks. I was trying to decide if I should buy the book or not and I thought if it were the same as the user’s manual then there would be no need to. Now that I know it’s different I may just have to pick up a copy.


There are some excerpts from the book that you might want to check out, they are available here: http://developer.nvidia.com/view.asp?IO=cg_tutorial_home
