    Particles in c++ using opengl

    Hi guys,

    I want to start a basic particle system in c++ using openGL. I wrote an algorithm for that but I don't understand how to start it.

    The problem I am facing is I can print the positions and velocity updates but I don't know how to show it visually using openGL.

    Is there any examples that I can start with...

    I hope you understand...

    Thanks in advance..

    Start with something simple to fully test your particle code/engine without being bogged down by OpenGL drawing.
    Perhaps something like GL_POINTS and use glDrawArrays is enough just to plot each vertex point as a pixel.
