OpenGL is a 3D API not a 3D engine. But anyway why dont you check out Mesa. Google will find it for you nicely.

Everything you need is here:
http://www.opengl.org/developers/documentation/specs.html

The various specs are revisions of the earlier ones and each is self contained so you only really need the latest specification to get up to speed. Bear in mind that the newer proposed additions in the latest spec are still the subject of ARB debate.

You should get the "Red Book": http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/det...=books&n=507846 (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0201604582/qid=1029372445/sr=8-1/ref=sr_8_1/103-7326159-2540630?s=books&n=507846)

An earlier edition is available online:
