As subject says, I want some links to good GLUT tutorials. And some other good opengl sites. Please dont refer to nehe.gamedev.net, which is the common answer http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/smile.gif

Hi,

GLUT is so easy, does it really need to have tuts? :-), If u know very basic things about GLUT, u can learn 'advanced' GLUT by searching GLUT API documentation.

For e.g. If u wanna know how to handle Page up button in GLUT u might go and look at the GLUT API which is really tidy, and figure out, there is a 'glutSpecialFunc' calback for something and ultimately know that u should use it for Page Up.

For GLUT API reference: http://www.opengl.org/developers/documentation/glut/spec3/spec3.html

So far, I like Mark Kilgard's "own" site the best for examples since it actually shows the results of commands (even for the less common stuff like win mgmt):
http://www.sgi.com/software/opengl/examples/glut/examples/

Another site which has helped:
http://www.lighthouse3d.com/opengl/glut/

Good luck.

nehe does have GLUT versions of his tutors on his site.
Is there some problem with his site or tutors?

I have a GLUT only site with a few tutors, the link is www.angelfire.com/linux/nexusone/ (http://www.angelfire.com/linux/nexusone/)

Note my tutors work in Windows and linux, with windows exe files also.
