wglarb – a small helper library for making creating OpenGL contexts with extended attributes easy

wglarb is a helper library for Windows OpenGL application development. The way OpenGL and WGL extensions are implemented in Windows require the creation of an intermediary OpenGL context (and usually also intermediary window) to obtain access to the extension functions.

wglarb hides the nasty details behind a initialization-less API. Just call wglarb_ChoosePixelFormatARB and wglarb_CreateContextAttribsARB. Initialization of the intermediary window and OpenGL context happen on demand as needed.

Important Notice: At the moment only ChoosePixelFormatARB and CreateContextAttribsARB are covered. Further wgl…ARB functions are yet subject for inclusion.
