    Re: Prompt in OpenGL

    You have several ways to print text on screen while using opengl: you can draw bitmaps or textures.
    You can use display lists to make the last (textures) easier.
    Depending on the OS and the API you use, you can have functions that manages that, like glx allowing to give a font and that represents this font.

    Hope this helps.
