GLUT emulation on a.n.other
Hi, thought a new thread is in order.
Given that the sources for GLUT don't seem to be ever going to make open-source, and there are many problems which need sorting out and updating. The argument for other packages is compelling - and hence the reason this section has others in it!
However, as pointed out by many, GLUT is pretty ubiquitous, and is used in many books and online web tutorials.
The proposal is to provide a GLUT emulation layer on top of a.n.other (maybe more than one) package.
However, it would NOT be sensible to try to recreate the whole API, and I therefore propose we should look to provide at least the functions calls used in e.g. redbook and the other major web sites. Not many calls in the end I'm sure.
Can folks please post up the list here so those of us considering doing the work can be sure we don't miss a call out.
With help I'm sure we can make this happen, and then the source code in so many places both on-line and printed can still work!
