vertex normals

if i specify a normal for a vertex, will opengl use that same normal for every subsequent vertex? or do i have to call glNormal3fv(normal); before every single vertex i draw?

OpenGL is a state maschine. So it work without entering the same normal again.

The only thing that you must do is to try it with one CTRL-INS and SHIFT-INS and recompiling it…:-))

(it works)
