GLUT/Tk provides a mechanism for control of 3D graphics applications by a full-featured GUI system. It connects control windows written in Tk to OpenGL graphics windows managed by GLUT, with minimal disruption of each package's default program structure and small changes to the GLUT source code. GLUT/Tk is available for both Unix/X and Windows platforms, and our experience indicates that using GLUT/Tk, instead of platform specific interprocess communication (IPC) methods, makes programs much easier to port.
