What part about inventory are you asking about? Are you looking for information about data structures, and how to store lists of these data structures (ie. linked list, vector, etc.)? What attributes inventory items should have? How to display the inventory to the user?

Also, which language do you use (C, C++, Visual Basic, etc)?

I think the excerpt of Programming Role Playing Games 2nd ed. here on gamedev talks about inventory systems.

I think that the book that chadmv referred to is an excellent reference. I actually decided to buy this book based on the sample chapter.

This part is can be adapted for any particular API.

A link to the sample chapter can be found here

If you are looking for code samples on how to handle the graphics of the inventory system (actually drawing the 2d stuff), I dont know anywhere off the top of my head, but I can help you look

Not a problem, It helps me too.. Haven't found too much though.

There is a link that I found here that has some tutorials on creating a GUI in OpenGL. It looks interesting, and could be adapted for writing your Inventory graphics. I haven't had much of a read over it yet, but it does seem to have alot of information.

Is this kind of what you were looking for?
