Hey, as the forum states, I am a new OpenGL programmer, but what I wanted to know, is if I know only a very little about C++ - like loops, declarations, abit of input/output, strings, etc.(the basics) - is it then possible to actual DO OpenGL? Only becuase I had tried doing that for a while, and although I understood the coding and everything that was happening and how it occured, etc., I had no idea to program things on my own, w/o the use of other examples. Ex: I had no idea how to make a "world" so that I could make an easy game w/ graphix(like tetris or tictactoe). So would it actually help to fully comprehend C++, or is it just a beginners problem?? Thanx!!!

I think you're better off learning a little bit more about C++. To the point where you don't have to use examples in order to make a program. OpenGL is easy to use, and learn, but it will be frustrating if you dont have a solid understanding of your programming language.
