Launch one or more compute work groups.
||-||The number of work groups to be launched in the X dimension.|
||-||The number of work groups to be launched in the Y dimension.|
||-||The number of work groups to be launched in the Z dimension.|
glDispatchCompute launches one or more compute work groups. Each work group is processed by the active program object for the compute shader stage. While the individual shader invocations within a work group are executed as a unit, work groups are executed completely independently and in unspecified order.
num_groups_z specify the number of local work groups that will be dispatched in the X, Y and Z dimensions, respectively.
GL_INVALID_OPERATION is generated if there is no active program for the compute shader stage.
GL_INVALID_VALUE is generated if any of
num_groups_y , or
num_groups_z is greater than or equal to the maximum work-group count for the corresponding dimension.
