With GL, it depends on which platform you are on.
1. On Windows, you use wgl
2. On *nix systems, glX is used.
3. On Mac's, it use to be agl functions but I think they dumped these in favor of NSGL functions. I'm not sure. I'm not a Mac expert.
All that stuff has existed since the beginning, 1992.
When OpenGL ES was designed, they wanted to create a single interface for all PDA and cellphones and onboard PCs = EGL.
