Description Vincent Hardy 2011-11-17 04:46:56 UTC
Proposal from Chris Marrin on www-style (

"If either the vertex or fragment cannot be loaded, a shader fails to compile, or the shader program fails to link, then the custom() function becomes a pass through filter".
Comment 1 Dirk Schulze 2013-07-04 16:24:36 UTC
Authors can specify fall backs with the new @filter rule (for the case that one shader doesn't load, take the next one).
