Hi Bab,

asking for as much as possible is a difficult thing, since one had to write pages of text to enumerate all available sources :-)

Anyway, here some pointers by me:

1) OpenGL is a procedural API available for almost all OS' in use today (inluding Linux, Mac etc.), which provides an easy and powerful means to create 2D and 3D graphics.

2) Main source for all OpenGL related stuff is www.opengl.org. Other important links are:


3) Although OpenGL is written in C there are many bindings for other languages out there (ADA, Delphi, Java etc.), see http://www.opengl.org/Documentation/Implementations.html.

4) If you are developing with Delphi I can give you even more help and source code...

Ciao, Mike

bab, you already accepted the answer so I can't submit one to this question. But this doesn't matter, ikxsoft has (as I had) to learn that usually answers on ExEx are given on request by the asker after a discussion has been around.

Ciao, Mike
