Good beginners book but no realworld examples,
By A Customer
This review is from: OpenGL Programming for the X Windows System (Paperback)
This book gets you up and running fast with OpenGL and X but it fails to point out how to do specific tasks. I didn't know how to use Xlib until I got this book. The examples are kinda flakey as they don't translate well to realworld programming. A ball bouncing in a box would have been a great example. Would somone please write a cross platform OpenGL manual insted of these platform specific books!!!
