  • Introduction

    The purpose of this library is to simplify the creation of computer graphics software. Specifically, it is targeted towards cross-platform development using the OpenGL rendering API and the FLTK interface toolkit. It is derived from the MixKit library I developed for supporting polygonal surface simplification. This is not a full-fledged graphics engine. Rather it provides facilities which are useful in the majority of graphics programs.
