This paper first provides some background into EGL's conceptual foundation. It then describes EGL at a high level, along with the motivations for employing such a language and its development environment. The paper goes on to present more details of EGL as it pertains to building applications. Finally, it provides some insight into the architecture behind an EGL-based application.
