Well that is good if you are not seeing any light on that circle (which is supposed to be a sphere). You are only supposed to see some a sphere with some shading and light. If you are not then the problem should be with the code and I hope I can fix it. Can you try changing the place of the light by changing the array and see if it creates any difference? I assume it wont though... our @Light_Position = ( 1.0, 1.0, 1.0, 1.0 );

    After changing @Light_Position I saw no change in the image.

      Okay I found the answer in a book for perl. Obviously packing the arrays or giving reference isnt good enough
      glMaterialfv_p(GL_FRONT, GL_SPECULAR, 1, 1, 1, 1); glMaterialfv_p(GL_FRONT, GL_SHININESS, 50); glLightfv_p (GL_LIGHT0, GL_POSITION, 1, 1, 1, 0);
      did the trick
        Hi, I'm using the latest SVN rev from New Perl OpenGL Release. I found that I also had to remove the line glEnable(GL_LIGHTING); from init, or the screen was black. By the way, if you havn't seen it, there is a very nice example in the SVN rev called, that is where I found those function's need for arrays. looks like it displays DNA type shapes, maybe you will find it contains some useful ideas.

        P.S. I'm running the NVidia driver on linux.
