    About these popular books...

    I've heard a lot of talk about "Red Book" and "Blue Book". Are these their official names, or nicknames? I've got got "OpenGL Programming Guide. The Official Guide to Learning OpenGL, v1.2, 3.rd edition". I started wondering if that could be one of them...

    anybody?

    Nicknames.

    You got the red one, or if not just check the color on it.

    The blue one is a reference book for the api I think. Cant remember its exact name now though.

    Blue Book = OpenGL Reference Manual.
