OpenGL is the C++ library for graphical applications, mostly 3D.

They are all markup languages - XML has the most features, base HTML the fewest. They are used mostly for web programming, allowing access to databases from the web, etc.

A lot of web applications also use scripting - vb, cgi, php, java are some languages used.

Thanks, guys.

a. you mean we can write 3D application by using OpenGL, like the 3DstudioMax application.

b. then we should learn XML better than HTML, rite?
