do these 2 books use glut? is there a book that''s like a reference manual, except there are some example not just for newbies? something that good to look at to get some info about any function for example or flags..

The red book covers virtually every aspect of opengl, but it uses glut. The opengl superbible is also good, but that too uses glut. I personally think glut is good for learning opengl, it let''s you ignore the platform that you are using, and focus only on the opengl code.
