glutCreateWindow(3GLUT)		     GLUT	       glutCreateWindow(3GLUT)

NAME
       glutCreateWindow	- creates a top-level window.

SYNTAX
       int glutCreateWindow(char *name);

ARGUMENTS
       name	 ASCII character string	for use	as window name.

DESCRIPTION
       glutCreateWindow	 creates a top-level window. The name will be provided
       to the window system as the window's name. The intent is	that the  win-
       dow system will label the window	with the name.

       Implicitly, the current window is set to	the newly created window.

       Each  created  window  has  a  unique  associated OpenGL	context. State
       changes to a window's associated	OpenGL context can be done immediately
       after the window	is created.

       The  display state of a window is initially for the window to be	shown.
       But the window's	display	state is not actually acted upon  until	 glut-
       MainLoop	is entered. This means until glutMainLoop is called, rendering
       to a created window is ineffective because the window can  not  yet  be
       displayed.

       The value returned is a unique small integer identifier for the window.
       The range of allocated identifiers starts at one. This  window  identi-
       fier can	be used	when calling glutSetWindow.

X IMPLEMENTATION NOTES
       The proper X Inter-Client Communication Conventions Manual (ICCCM) top-
       level properties	are established. The WM_COMMAND	 property  that	 lists
       the  command  line  used	to invoke the GLUT program is only established
       for the first window created.
