The OpenGL Utility Toolkit.

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 is designed for constructing small to medium sized OpenGL programs. While GLUT is well-suited to learning OpenGL and developing simple OpenGL applications, GLUT is not a full-featured toolkit so large applications requiring sophisticated user interfaces are better off using native window system toolkits like Motif. GLUT is simple, easy, and small.

CHANGES for GLUT API version 2

GLUT API version 2 should be fully compatible with the GLUT API
version 1.

Here are the GLUT API version 2 additions in more detail:

  GLUT_MULTISAMPLE - a display mode bit mask for requesting
    multi-sampling (hw anti-aliasing) available for Reality Engine
    class graphics hardware (IRIX 5.3 has multi-sampling GLX


CHANGES for GLUT API version 3

GLUT API version 3 should be (almost) fully compatible with the
GLUT API version 2.  See the GLUT 3 specification for full details.

Please be aware of two obscure reasons that programs that worked
under GLUT API version 2 may need slight modification for GLUT 3.

  1)  You are now _required_ to have a display callback registered


An on-line (possibly more up-to-date) version of this GLUT Frequently
Asked Questions list can be f
