Library for Using Arbitrary Fonts in OpenGL Applications

FTGL is a free open source library that enables developers to use
arbitrary fonts in their OpenGL ( applications.

Unlike other OpenGL font libraries, FTGL uses standard font file
formats, so there is no need of a preprocessing step to convert the
high quality font data into a lesser quality, proprietary format.

FTGL uses the Freetype ( font library to open and
'decode' the fonts. It then takes that output and stores it in a format
that is most efficient for OpenGL rendering.

The supported rendering modes are:

- Bit maps

- Antialiased Pix maps

- Outlines

- Polygon meshes

- Extruded polygon meshes

- Texture maps

- Buffer maps
