GLT OpenGL C++ Toolkit

Glt is a library of C++ classes and routines for programming interactive 3D graphics with OpenGL. The aim of Glt is to augment the OpenGL API with convenient mechanisms for manipulating the OpenGL state machine. Glt is a work in progress, and by no means covers the entire OpenGL specification. However, it already includes several useful classes and is designed so that additional classes can be added easily. In addition to Glt, the GlutMaster classes provide C++ wrappers for the GLUT API.
