Im using Visual C++/OpenGL. I know how to make a cube, but what about a sphere in OpenGL?

This is one of thousands...
Type a gl function name into google and many more will
show up.

Yes, there is this great site that offers documentation on all of the opengl, glu, glut commands on-line!!!
www.opengl.org (http://www.opengl.org)

On the main page of the site is a developer documentation menu, with all you are asking.

This site also offers a search window on the main page that you can input the opengl command and will give you information on it.
