I were able to create an OpenGL context using coreGL (or something called Core) but i didn't managed to figure out what to do next. There seems to be lacking of windowing support on mac. So i could use this context as an offscreen context and it should work, but i'm not tried it yet. One of disappointment is that when i query the renderer used for given context, it reports an "Apple software renderer" , which not what i expected means that it is a software renderer, and not hardware acccelerated.. (or maybe it should be read as 'apple-software' renderer.. then there is more hope :) You can check the work if you load the package NBOpenGL-Mac. Any help or suggestions will be appreciated.
