Okay, so I know this is going to seem simplistic, but I've been working with OpenGL/GLUT for about six months, and am to the point where my program needs a user interface which allows for text input (for various default parameter values for the simulations it's running). I can't seem to figure out how to do the equivalent of basic Java text input boxes. Right now I'm using command line options to the C program to set all the values, but I'm tiring of it quickly. Ideally, I'd like a startup screen (running in Linux) with about 10 input boxes which can take text from the user before running the graphics simulation. Any suggestions? I've heard of GLUI/PUI/MUI, but only just in passing, and have no idea whether they could help.
