include: Scaling of 2D images and creation of mipmap pyramids,
Transformation of object coordinates into device coordinates and
vice versa, Support for NURBS surfaces, Support for tessellation
of concave or bow tie polygonal primitives, Specialty transformation
matrices for creating perspective and orthographic projections,
positioning a camera, and selection/picking, Rendering of disk,
cylinder, and sphere primitives, Interpreting OpenGL error values
as ASCII text.")

(synopsis "Alternative to the OpenGL Utility Toolkit (GLUT)")
"Freeglut is a completely Free/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.")
