"OpenGL Programming for the X Window System" source code

I occasionally get asked in email for a pointer to the on-line source code for my book “Programming OpenGL for the X Window System” (Addison-Wesley, ISBN 0201483599).

Unfortunately, the ftp sites listed in Appendix A are out of date. (It’s just hard to keep an ftp location from 1996 active. :slight_smile:

If you are looking for the source code, you can still get it from the Addison-Wesley web site at this URL:


Note that the files are formated as Unix text files rather than DOS files. For Linux or Unix users, this should not be much of a problem, but Windows users may want to use “unix2dos” or a similar utility to make the files easily readable by DOS or Windows text editors.

Also note that the GLUT source code contained in glut.tar.Z within the downloadable ZIP file is pretty dated.

I hope this helps.
