Projects / freeglut


freeglut is intended to be a 100% plug-compatible clone, and is released under the Xfree license. The GLUT (OpenGL Utility Toolkit) is a widely used library for doing window control, keyboard, and mouse input, and other basic functions for OpenGL programs. However, GLUT is not OpenSourced - although it's source code is available under a somewhat ill-defined set of restrictions. Hence, 'freeglut'.
