RE: [gtk-list] gtk and 3d graphics

GTK+ is a widget set ... a toolkit for creating two-dimensional graphical
user interfaces.  Mesa is an open-source implementation of the OpenGL API
... a toolkit for drawing three-dimensional objects.  So the relationship
between the two is that you would use GTK+ to handle the windows, menus,
buttons, etc. for your program, and Mesa/OpenGL to draw your 3D images.

If you prefer using C++ to C, you may want to look at the SDPGTK libraries,
a set of C++ wrappers for GTK+ that include Mesa/OpenGL support.
