True, GLPT is close to GLUT, but also to GLFW. I am not trying to create an
emulator of any of the two, but rather create something that works
perfectly for FPC instead. It should be relatively easy to create a wrapper
unit though for GLUT and GLFW users. The same for creating a dynamic
library for C users. :)

Great! Can I use it for GLPT?

Not converted to C yet, but it is converted to modern OpenGL. I also

Please share anything you can or are willing to. I need use cases to test
the library and help new users to get started..

Rgds, Darius
