    HOWTO: making dynamic reflections w/ Pbuffer

    Good morning / afternoon / evening!

    I want to have a reflective surface in my scene, I've decided to use Pbuffer to make a reflection cube map.
    The problem is: I know how to create/bind/destroy pbuffer, but how to actually render a reflected surroundings to a cube map? And how to map this cube map to a surface to get a proper reflection?

    If you already know about p-buffer, then extending them is easy to support RTT.
    an open source GLU replacement library. Much more modern than GLU.
    float matrix[16], inverse_matrix[16];
    glhTranslatef2(matrix, 0.0, 0.0, 5.0);
    glhRotateAboutXf2(matrix, angleInRadians);
    glhScalef2(matrix, 1.0, 1.0, -1.0);
    glhQuickInvertMatrixf2(matrix, inverse_matrix);
    glUniformMatrix4fv(uniformLocation1, 1, FALSE, matrix);
    glUniformMatrix4fv(uniformLocation2, 1, FALSE, inverse_matrix);
