The OpenGL Extension Wrangler Library (GLEW) is a cross-platform open-source C/C++ extension loading library. GLEW provides efficient run-time mechanisms for determining which OpenGL extensions are supported on the target platform. OpenGL core and extension functionality is exposed in a single header file. GLEW has been tested on a variety of operating systems, including Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, FreeBSD, Irix, and Solaris.
Instant GLEW explains how OpenGL Extensions are used to expose cutting-edge features through the OpenGL API. Readers will learn how to install GLEW on Windows and configure their OpenGL program to build with it. The book starts with an introduction to GLEW and unlocks its power in OpenGL programs.
