OpenGL: A Primer is a concise presentation of fundamental OpenGL. The book makes it easy for students to find functions and their descriptions. Supplemental examples are included in every chapter.

**Features **

- Introduces a set of OpenGL functions and develops program examples that apply these functions in each chapter.
- Presents a non-mathematical treatment of OpenGL that covers the "how to" and gets students programming quickly with OpenGL.
- All chapters include a discussion of common pitfalls.
- All examples have been tested on Windows and Linux.

**New To This Edition **

- Discusses OpenGL 1.2, 1.2, 1.4, and 1.5, the OpenGL shading language, and vertex and fragment shaders.
- Introduces a set of commands and uses running program examples that apply these in each chapter.
- Contains additional examples.
