Where can I find the licensing agreement for glut 3.7. I''ve looked through all the README''s, etc, but it doesn''t clearly say what you can or can''t do. For instance can it be used by a commercial game? Thanks, David

Glut is apparently under a free-to-use-but-not-modify license of some sort.

This came up though:
http://freeglut.sourceforge.net/

freeglut is an api-compatible replacement for GLUT, under the X-Consortium license. (http://www.x.org/terms.htm)

From the page:
freeglut is a completely OpenSourced alternative to the OpenGL Utility Toolkit (GLUT) library. GLUT was originally written by Mark Kilgard to support the sample programs in the second edition OpenGL ''RedBook''.
