Whats the difference between a call to glOrtho( l, r, b, t, n, f); and gluOrtho2D(l, r, b, t); ? When Should I use one instead of the other? Why does the second one (but not the first one) require this code first: glMatrixMode(GL_PROJECTION); glLoadIdentity(); Thanks ----- It''''s not my fault I''''m the biggest and the strongest; I don''''t even exercise!

The only difference between the two calls, is that gluOrtho2D will use -1 for n, and 1 for f implicity.

glMatrixMode/glLoadIdentity reset the projection matrix, because glOrtho multiples by it insted of just setting it outright.
