Book Description

3D graphics hardware is evolving quickly and expanding across devices ranging from smartphones to tablets to computers. OpenGL Extensions help vendors to expose the cutting-edge features of their hardware to developers in a usable manner. However, the mix of different hardware and operating system versions can make the use of these extensions quite difficult. The solution to this is the OpenGL Extension Wrangler (GLEW) library.

"Instant GLEW" is a quick guide to learn how to install GLEW on Windows and how to use it in your OpenGL programs. You will learn how to use any OpenGL Extension you want in your program in a safe and portable manner.

"Instant GLEW" explains how OpenGL Extensions are used to expose cutting-edge features through the OpenGL API. You will learn how to install GLEW on Windows and configure your OpenGL program to build with it. The book starts with an introduction to GLEW and details the benefits of its usage in OpenGL programs.

Later, the book guides you through configuring Visual Studio or a Linux compile environment for using GLEW. This book comprises of short codes that illustrate simple common extensions. You will also find out about alternatives to GLEW and how to use extensions without GLEW.
