NAME
     glutIconifyWindow -- Iconify the current window

LIBRARY
     OpenGLUT - window

SYNOPSIS
     #include <openglut.h>

     void
     glutIconifyWindow(void);

DESCRIPTION
     Most window systems have some kind of ``minimized'' or ``iconified'' state for windows.  All
     systems currently supported by OpenGLUT do so.  The exact meaning of iconification is some-
     what system-dependant, but this makes a request of the window system to place the window
     into this state.

     Graphic output is usually suspended in this form.	User input may be partially or wholly
     suspended.

     If and when your window is iconified by the window system, it may be uniconified at any time
     by the system.  This usually happens at the request of a user.  Because of this, you should
     not use this function to hide a window.  Rather, it is to help unclutter the user's display,
     and is more or less consensual with the user.  Use glutHideWindow() if you want to hide the
     window entirely.

CAVEATS
     Applies only to onscreen, top-level windows.

     Not guaranteed to have any effect; effect may be arbitrarily delayed.

     There is no callback that specifically tells you when (or if) your window is iconified.
