The Red Book is another name for "OpenGL Programming Guide, The Official Guide To Learning OpenGL".

You can get the second edition (1.1, 1997) in PDF format here (8 MB):
http://www.gamedev.net/download/redbook.pdf

Most other "RedBooks" that you will find on the net are copies of the first edition, which is not quite up to date (the first edition is for OpenGL 1.0 I think).

Btw, is this copy legal? I believe the latest edtition is the third edition (it costs about $100 in Swedish stores, so it's not really an option to buy it for private use I think).

PS. Look up C and C++ in the Glossary of the Red Book http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/wink.gif
