$static_title = 'Khronos OpenGL&reg; Registry';
<p> The OpenGL Registry contains specifications of the core API and
shading language; specifications of Khronos- and vendor-approved
OpenGL extensions; header files corresponding to the specifications; and
related documentation including specifications, extensions, and headers
for the GLX, WGL, and GLU APIs. </p>
<p> The OpenGL registry is part of the <a
href=""> Combined OpenGL Registry </a>
for OpenGL, OpenGL ES, and OpenGL SC, which includes the <a
href="xml/">XML API registry</a> of reserved enumerants and
functions. </p>

<h2> <a name="headers"></a> API and Extension Header Files </h2>
<p> Because extensions vary from platform to platform and driver to
driver, OpenGL developers can't expect interfaces for all extensions
to be defined in the standard <tt>gl.h</tt>, <tt>glx.h</tt>, and
<tt>wgl.h</tt> header files supplied with the OS / graphics drivers.
Additional header files are provided here, including: </p>
<p> Almost all of the headers described below depend on a platform header
file common to multiple Khronos APIs called
<tt>&lt;KHR/khrplatform.h&gt;</tt>. </p>
<li> <tt><a href="api/GL/glext.h">&lt;GL/glext.h&gt;</a></tt> - OpenGL
1.2 and above compatibility profile and extension interfaces. </li>
<li> <tt><a href="api/GL/glcorearb.h">&lt;GL/glcorearb.h&gt;</a></tt> -
OpenGL core profile and ARB extension interfaces, as described in
appendix G.2 of the OpenGL 4.3 Specification. Does not include
interfaces found only in the compatibility profile. </li>
<li> <tt><a href="api/GL/glxext.h">&lt;GL/glxext.h&gt;</a></tt> - GLX
1.3 and above API and GLX extension interfaces. </li>
<li> <tt><a href="api/GL/wglext.h">&lt;GL/wglext.h&gt;</a></tt> - WGL
extension interfaces. </li>
<p> These headers define interfaces including enumerants; prototypes; and,
for platforms supporting dynamic runtime extension queries, such as
Linux and Microsoft Windows, function pointer typedefs. Please report
problems as <a
in the <a href="index.php#repository">OpenGL-Registry</a> repository.
<p> <a name="headerskhr"></a> <b> Khronos Shared Platform Header
(<tt>&lt;KHR/khrplatform.h&gt;</tt>) </b> </p>
<li> The OpenGL headers all depend on the shared
<a href="">
<tt>&lt;KHR/khrplatform.h&gt;</tt></a> header from the <a
href=""> EGL Registry </a>.
This is a new dependency, introduced in
<a href="">
OpenGL-Registry pull request 183</a> for increased compatibility
between OpenGL and OpenGL ES headers. </li>
