OpenGL (and related library) interface for Python
PyOpenGL is an interface between the Python programming language and the OpenGL library and related libraries. The package provides interfaces to
- The OpenGL library itself, which is a three-dimensional graphical rendering interface. For more information, visit http//www.opengl.org. - The GLU library which provides access to routines for doing quadrics, tesselation etc. - The GLUT GL UTilitity library from Mark Kilgard, which provides a windowing environment. - The Togl Tk/OpenGL widget from Brian Paul and Ben Benderson an alternative to GLUT which interfaces to Tk.
The Python bindings offer some value-added tools in addition to the standard API, including support for fast processing of arrays of coordinates, trackball support, etc.
