    Could anybody point me to a paper which covers the theory of OpenGL lighting?

    I'm a Newbie to OpenGL, with limited mathematical knowledge, developing a DLOD T&L engine for OpenGL in Delphi ( ), and would need a paper on the theory of lighting in OpenGL, I have the 1.1 OGL (get constant server busy when trying to dl 1.2.1 Specs??) specs, but the info there does little to nothing for me.

    Thanks,
    Frank.

    I found it, thanks
    The URL is: http://heron.cc.ukans.edu/ebt-bin/np...per/OpenGL_PG/

    However, the section on the mathematics there cover to much of the how and to little on the why for my special case...
