GLEX OpenGL API extension specification parser

GLEX is an Open Source project that implements an OpenGL extension specification parser in PHP that can be used both online (using the OpenGL Extension Registry) or from the command line. It reads the specification text file either from a file or URL and outputs a minimal set of compact C source files that can be easily added to existing projects to initialize the desired extension. It is intended to be used when only a small number of extensions are required and code size should be minimized and to complement existing extension initialization libraries like GLEW or GLee. This makes it a good tool to test new extensions for which a specification is available but which are not yet included in any of the above libraries.  (also available at mirror site)
