PDF | HTML
This guide describes a programming interface (with ANSI C and C++ bindings) for creating real-time graphics applications with high-performance rendering in an easy-to-use 3D graphics toolkit. OpenGL Performer interfaces with the OpenGL library and runs on the IRIX, Linux, or Microsoft Windows operating system. Topics covered include an overview of real-time image generation and OpenGL Performer, information on application and scene-graph structure, details of database traversal, hints on load management and special effects, a description of the dozens of file loaders provided with OpenGL Performer, and information about the low-level libpr rendering library, math tools, statistics gathering and reporting, application tuning, and the C++ programmer's API.

Instructions for Downloading HTML Files
The HTML download consists of a single, complete "package"
containing all HTML and graphic files for this manual (007-1680-090). This
"package" is in a gzipped tar format. To open the package
if using IRIX or Linux:
% cd <some_directory>
% gunzip 007-1680-090.html.tgz
% tar xvf 007-1680-090.html.tar
- This will create a 007-1680-090 subdirectory off
the <some_directory> location specified above. You
may then view the book using any web_browser as follows:
% web_browser <some_directory>/007-1680-090/index.html
if using Windows (note: an extraction utility program such
as Winzip is needed):
In Internet Explorer, right-click on the link, select "Save
Target As...". Choose a folder (temporary or otherwise) to
download the file to and set the filename to be <product>.tar.gz
After the download completes, start the Windows (file) Explorer,
open the folder in which you downloaded the file to, and
double-click the filename
Winzip (or your installed extraction
utility program) should start. In
Winzip, a prompt should appear:
"...decompress to temp folder..." - click "Yes".
Winzip will display a list of files
that are included in the archive/package you downloaded. Click the
"Extract" icon. In the resultant window, select a
directory (folder) to extract the files into
click "Extract". A new folder will be created in the
chosen extract directory (folder). That new folder will be entitled
"007-1680-090". Quit winzip.
In the Windows (file) Explorer, open the newly-created folder
