My current experience with OpenGL is limited to C (never even seen Open
Inventor) on NT 3.51. I have old copies of the ARB red and blue books.
I may get a new copy of the red book.

Is this the book you're talking about?
I'll have to think about that. I'm hoping I can get by with the Apple
Although I will probably use the local copy I have from installing

Bookmarked! This should help.

I looked it up here:
It does indeed look old. I'm not really interested in the libsdl part
either, just OpenGL wrappers. Maybe I would be better off just using
the OpenMCL FFI. I don't know yet. I've gone ahead and downloaded
0.2.2 to have a look at it.

I'll take a look at that.
BTW, has anyone done anything along the lines of implementing a CLOS
analog to Open Inventor?
