FreeGLUT is a C library for creating and managing an OpenGL window. It has functions to control the various aspects of OpenGL Context creation, as well as rudimentary input routines and multi-window support.

FreeGLUT is a successor to the older GLUT (OpenGL Utility Toolkit). If you are currently using GLUT, please stop; it is old and outdated. Use FreeGLUT instead, as it is backwards compatible with GLUT applications.
