I am unable to render text in my GLUT based openGL program with out weird arrays of bits. There has got to be an easier way to this. Can anyone help?

What do you mean by weird array of bits? I use text rendering from glut and is easy...

void renderBitmapString(
float x,
float y,
float z,
void *font,
char *string) {
char *c;
glRasterPos3f(x, y,z);
for (c=string; *c != '\0'; c++) {
glutBitmapCharacter(font, *c);
}
}

is pretty easy...

Exactly all of the examples I was able to find contained an array of 40+ bits. Which I decided could not possibly be right. Thanks for the help.
