freeglut is a completely OpenSourced alternative to the OpenGL
Utility Toolkit (GLUT) library.  GLUT was originally written by
Mark Kilgard to support the sample programs in the second edition
OpenGL 'RedBook'.  Since then, GLUT has been used in a wide variety
of practical applications because it is simple, widely available
and highly portable.
GLUT (and hence freeglut) allows the user to create and manage
windows containing OpenGL contexts on a wide range of platforms and
also read the mouse, keyboard and joystick functions.
freeglut is released under the X-Consortium license.
