    OpenGL?

    Where can I download OpenGL? I tried downloading it from opengl.org but all I saw were links to something called GLUT. I downloaded it, but the tutorials from NeHe have several header files not included in the GLUT binary.

    Just where would I download the entire package?

    If you have Windows 95+ and drivers that support it, you already have OpenGL installed.

    EDIT: Should probably mention that the main GL headers (usually GL/gl.h, and GL/glu.h) usually come with your IDE/compiler, unless you have VC++ 2005 Express, in which case you'll need the Platform SDK.

    You should also probably grab glext.h for in the future when you want support for extensions and functionality beyond OpenGL 1.1.
