glGenLists — generate a contiguous set of empty display lists
GLuint glGenLists(GLsizei range);
Specifies the number of contiguous empty display lists to be generated.
glGenLists has one argument, range. It returns an integer n such that range contiguous empty display lists, named n, n + 1, ..., n + range - 1, are created. If range is 0, if there is no group of range contiguous names available, or if any error is generated, no display lists are generated, and 0 is returned.
GL_INVALID_VALUE is generated if range is negative.
GL_INVALID_OPERATION is generated if glGenLists is executed between the execution of glBegin() and the corresponding execution of glEnd().
