    One's a reference manual and the other is a programming guide. One of the books I linked to on ebay is a blue book.

    You're going to spend a lot more at a bookstore than you will if you buy it off ebay. I checked amazon.ca, and to buy the blue book new is $57 canadian. To get it off ebay is $13.

    to answer your question i would assume OpenGL stands for Open Graphics Library or something to that extent...
