Introduction to OpenGL

The OCaml Journal just published an article explaining just how easily real-time visualizations can be created using the OCaml programming language:

"OpenGL is the defacto-standard cross-platform graphics API and provides an efficient way to leverage the high-performance hardware accelerators found in almost all modern computers. The OCaml programming language has unusually good support for OpenGL with the LablGL library providing an elegant interface to OpenGL on all three major platforms. This article introduces OpenGL programming using OCaml, demonstrating how functional programming can be leveraged to produce visualization software that is simple and efficient..."
