  Description     : portable API for OpenGL graphical interfaces

 Pugl is a minimal portable API for OpenGL GUIs which supports
 embedding and is suitable for use in plugins, but can also be
 used for programs.

 Pugl is vaguely similar to GLUT, but with some significant
  * Minimal in scope, providing only what is necessary to draw
    and receive keyboard and mouse input.
  * No reliance on static data whatsoever, so the API can be
    used in plugins or multiple independent parts of a program.
  * Single implementation, which is small, liberally licensed
    and suitable for direct inclusion in programs if avoiding a
    library dependency is desired.
  * Support for embedding in other windows, so Pugl code can
    draw to a widget inside a larger GUI.
  * More complete support for keyboard input, including
    additional “special” keys, modifiers, and support for
    detecting individual modifier key presses.
