OpenGL Mathematics (GLM) is a header only C++ mathematics library for graphics software based on the OpenGL Shading Language (GLSL) specifications.
GLM provides classes and functions designed and implemented with the same naming conventions and functionalities than GLSL so that anyone who knows GLSL, can use GLM as well in C++.
This project isn't limited to GLSL features. An extension system, based on the GLSL extension conventions, provides extended capabilities: matrix transformations, quaternions, data packing, random numbers, noise, etc...
This library works perfectly with OpenGL but it also ensures interoperability with other third party libraries and SDK. It is a good candidate for software rendering (raytracing / rasterisation), image processing, physic simulations and any development context that requires a simple and convenient mathematics library.
GLM is written in C++98 but can take advantage of C++11 when supported by the compiler. It is a platform independent library with no dependence and it officially supports the following compilers:
- Apple Clang 4.0 and higher
- GCC 4.2 and higher
- Intel C++ Composer XE 2013 and higher
- LLVM 3.0 and higher
- Visual C++ 2010 and higher
- CUDA 4.0 and higher (experimental)
- Any conform C++98 or C++11 compiler
See the version list below for details.
This package has no dependencies.
