See also glIndexPointer.
GL_NORMAL_ARRAY
If enabled, use normal arrays with calls to glArrayElement, glDrawElements, or glDrawArrays.
See also glNormalPointer.
GL_TEXTURE_COORD_ARRAY
If enabled, use texture coordinate arrays with calls to glArrayElement, glDrawElements, or glDrawArrays.
See also glTexCoordPointer.
GL_VERTEX_ARRAY
If enabled, use vertex arrays with calls to glArrayElement, glDrawElements, or glDrawArrays.
