Open GL Homepage
- OpenGL is the premier environment for developing portable, interactive 2D and 3D graphics applications from modeling to scientific to games.
- GLUT (pronounced like the glut in gluttony) is the OpenGL Utility Toolkit, a window system independent toolkit for writing OpenGL programs. It implements a simple windowing application programming interface (API) for OpenGL. GLUT makes it considerably easier to learn about and explore OpenGL programming. GLUT provides a portable API so you can write a single OpenGL program that works on both Win32 PCs and X11 workstations.
- Mesa is a 3-D graphics library with an API which is very similar to that of OpenGL.
