OpenGL is a graphics API, so you use it to handle the rendering with various calls (such as glVertex3f()). I'd suggest if you look at NeHe's site if you are asking questions like that, I found it amazingly helpful. Also, FireStorm's site has some small, but very useful tutorials aimed more at making an engine than demos. The address for that site is: http://www.firestorm.go.ro. I hope this is helpful :)

Open Graphic Library (= OpenGL)
