NAME
     glutMainLoop -- The standard GLUT event loop entry point.

LIBRARY
     OpenGLUT - mainloop

SYNOPSIS
     #include <openglut.h>

     void
     glutMainLoop(void);

DESCRIPTION
     This is the main driving force for an event-driven OpenGLUT program.  It alternates between
     calling glutMainLoopEvent() to process pending events and then either sleeping or calling
     your idle function (see glutIdleFunc()).

     This function  can   return, but GLUT's version of this function never returned.  And you
     must do special things to OpenGLUT to cause OpenGLUT's version to return.

     The cross-reference section for this function's documentation should ideally contain every
     callback, but the list would be tediously long and prone to omissions.

CAVEATS
     For OpenGLUT developers' internal documentation: Runs until the  ExecState  changes to
     GLUT_EXEC_STATE_STOP.

BUGS
     Talking to other message systems (e.g., network layers) can be a bit bothersome under the
     GLUT event model.
