Detailed Description

       The SoShaderProgram class is used to specify a set of vertex/geometry/fragment objects.

       This node can store one of each of SoVertexShader, SoGeometryShader and SoFragmentShader
       in its shaderObject field. Coin will load all shader objects specified there, and attach
       all objects into a program before binding it as the current shader program.

       A typical scene graph with shaders will look something like this:

         Separator {
           ShaderProgram {
             shaderObject [
               VertexShader {
                 sourceProgram 'myvertexshader.glsl'
                 parameter [
                   ShaderParameter1f { name 'myvertexparam' value 1.0 }
               FragmentShader {
                 sourceProgram 'myfragmentshader.glsl'
                 parameter [
                   ShaderParameter1f { name 'myfragmentparam' value 2.0 }
           Cube { }

       This will render the Cube with the vertex and fragment shaders specified in
       myvertexshader.glsl and myfragmentshader.glsl. Coin also supports ARB shaders and Cg
       shaders (if the Cg library is installed). However, we recommend using GLSL since we will
       focus mostly on support this shader language.

       Coin defines some named parameters that can be added by the application programmer, and
       which will be automatically updated by Coin while traversing the scene graph.

       · coin_texunit[n]_model - Set to 0 when texturing is disabled, and to
         SoTextureImageElement::Model if there's a current texture on the state for unit n.
       · coin_light_model - Set to 1 for PHONG, 0 for BASE_COLOR lighting.
       Example scene graph that renders per-fragment OpenGL Phong lighting for one light source.
       The shaders assume the first light source is a directional light. This is the case if you
       open the file in a standard examiner viewer.
       The iv-file:

               VertexShader {

               FragmentShader {

                               inout vec4 specular)
           float nDotVP; // normal . light direction

           float pf;     // power factor

           nDotVP = max(0.0, dot(normal, normalize(vec3(gl_LightSource[i].position))));
           nDotHV = max(0.0, dot(normal, vec3(gl_LightSource[i].halfVector)));

           if (nDotVP == 0.0)
             pf = 0.0;
             pf = pow(nDotHV, gl_FrontMaterial.shininess);

           ambient += gl_LightSource[i].ambient;
           diffuse += gl_LightSource[i].diffuse * nDotVP;
           specular += gl_LightSource[i].specular * pf;

         void main(void)
           vec3 eye = -normalize(ecPosition3);
           vec4 ambient = vec4(0.0);
           vec4 diffuse = vec4(0.0);
           vec4 specular = vec4(0.0);
           vec3 color;

           DirectionalLight(0, normalize(fragmentNormal), ambient, diffuse, specular);

           color =
             gl_FrontLightModelProduct.sceneColor.rgb +
             ambient.rgb * gl_FrontMaterial.ambient.rgb +
             diffuse.rgb * gl_Color.rgb +
             specular.rgb * gl_FrontMaterial.specular.rgb;

           gl_FragColor = vec4(color, gl_Color.a);
