GtkGLArea is an OpenGL context provider for GTK+. It can be used in several ways:
- using the GtkGLArea widget, a simple OpenGL rendering canvas similar in use to GtkDrawingArea.
- using a GdkGLContext to add an OpenGL context to almost any existing drawable widget.
- using a GdkGLPixmap for off-screen rendering to pixmap objects.
