glPushClientAttrib, glPopClientAttrib − push and pop the client attribute stack
void glPushClientAttrib( GLbitfield mask); 1.1 )
Specifies a mask that indicates which attributes to save. Values for 1.1 are listed below.
void glPopClientAttrib( void); 1.1 )
glPushClientAttrib takes one argument, a mask that indicates which groups of client-state variables to save on the client attribute stack. Symbolic constants are used to set bits in the mask. 1.1 is typically constructed by OR’ing several of these constants together. The special mask GL_CLIENT_ALL_ATTRIB_BITS can be used to save all stackable client state.
The symbolic mask constants and their associated GL client state are as follows (the second column lists which attributes are saved):
Pixel storage modes
GL_CLIENT_VERTEX_ARRAY_BIT Vertex arrays (and enables)
glPopClientAttrib restores the values of the client-state variables saved with the last glPushClientAttrib. Those not saved are left unchanged.
It is an error to push attributes onto a full client attribute stack, or to pop attributes off an empty stack. In either case, the error flag is set, and no other change is made to GL state.
Initially, the client attribute stack is empty.
glPushClientAttrib is available only if the GL version is 1.1 or greater.
Not all values for GL client state can be saved on the attribute stack. For example, select and feedback state cannot be saved.
The depth of the attribute stack depends on the implementation, but it must be at least 16.
Use glPushAttrib and glPopAttrib to push and restore state which is kept on the server. Only pixel storage modes and vertex array state may be pushed and popped with glPushClientAttrib and glPopClientAttrib.
When the GL_ARB_multitexture extension is supported, pushing and popping client vertex array state apples to all supported texture units, and the active client texture state.
GL_STACK_OVERFLOW is generated if glPushClientAttrib is called while the attribute stack is full.
GL_STACK_UNDERFLOW is generated if glPopClientAttrib is called while the attribute stack is empty.

Free Software provides computer programs and capabilities at no cost but more importantly, it provides the freedom to run, edit, contribute to, and share the software. The importance of free software is a matter of access, not price. Software at no cost is a benefit but ownership rights to the software and source code is far more significant.
