The OpenGL Performer Getting Started Guide introduces the most important concepts and classes in the OpenGL Performer library. For further reference, the OpenGL Performer Programmer's Guide contains a full explanation of all Performer classes. Use the OpenGL Getting Started Guide to quick-start your programming using the OpenGL Performer API. OpenGL Performer provides a programming interface (with ANSI C and C++ bindings) for creating real-time graphics applications and offers high-perfomrance rendering in an easy- to-use 3D graphics toolkit. OpenGL Performer interfaces to the OpenGL graphics library; this library combined with the IRIX, Linux, or Microsoft Windows operating system forms the foundation of a powerful suite of tools and features for creating real-time 3D graphics applications on SGI systems.
