    glut is the library written by mark kilgard from nvidia that provides various OpenGL tools (kinda similar to GLU in some ways now that I think of it) but it is especially useful because of the fact that it allows you to just call a few functions that set up the window no matter what Operating system you are on. It also allows for keyboard inputs and mouse inputs, again no matter what OS you are on.

    GLAux, hmm, I'm not really sure anymore.

    Hawkins/Astle:
    Code:
    #include <gl/glaux.h> // OpenGL auxiliary functions
    Illusion and reality become impartiality and confidence.

    Try to help all less knowledgeable than yourself, within
    the limits provided by time, complexity and tolerance.
